Constitution Day is an opportunity to honor the creation and adoption of the U.S. Constitution. It's also an opportunity to celebrate those who have become U.S. citizens either by birth or naturalization. Our Legal Studies Institute is excited to celebrate Constitution Day by hosting events throughout the day for students, faculty and staff.
