Program Brochure | Press Release

America is experiencing a documented breakdown in public understanding of the Constitution and a corresponding rise in official disrespect for constitutional norms and values. This conference will examine how law schools can intervene to change the cycles of constitutional ignorance and disregard for the rule of law. Panelists will discuss constitutional liberty programs like the Marshall- Brennan Program, Street Law, clinical outreach and civic learning programs, and law professors and students as public activists and educators.
