Constitution Day

Each year, a national celebration commemorates the signing of the U.S. Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787, which created the framework for a strong but limited national government and established the fundamental rights of all U.S. citizens.

As lawyers who have been sworn to uphold the Constitution, you have the perfect opportunity to educate students in your community about our justice system and the rule of law.
