The Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project

A Program with Local Origins Continues to Grow in National Stature

Founded in 1999 by two visionary American University Washington College of Law (AUWCL) faculty members, Jamin Raskin and Stephen Wermiel, The Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project has grown exponentially to become a nationally recognized law-related education initiative with chapters in 19 law schools. The program promotes civic engagement and constitutional literacy by placing talented and dedicated upper-level law students in high school classrooms to teach courses in constitutional law and oral advocacy.
