Celebrate Constitution Day on Sept 17

By , September 9, 2014 10:33 am

Constitution Day 2014How much do you remember from your civics and American government courses?  Test your knowledge in honor of Constitution Day!

Please join the UMKC School of Law for a trivia competition over the lunch hour on September 17, 2014 in the law school’s student lounge.  The event is hosted by the American Constitution Society and the Black Law Student Association.

Also in honor of Constitution Day, UMKC Law students are volunteering to teach a civics class at a local middle school to share their passion for the Constitution and Constitutional law.

Constitution Day became a recognized federal holiday in 2004, when legislation authored by Senator Robert Byrd was signed into law.  The Act mandates that all educational institutions that receive public funding provide educational programming on the history of the American Constitution on or near September 17th each year.
