Constitution Day is on September 17th! In connection with Constitution Day, Professor Jack Rakove, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and world-renowned expert on the American founding and U.S. Constitution, will deliver a lecture entitled “What Did the Constitution Originally Mean? Two Interpretations.” This will take place at 2:00 PM at the Chapel on September 17th.
The law library has created a display of Mr. Rakove’s books available at the library. Also, check out some of our other resources on the drafting and ratification of the Constitution: The Documentary History of the Ratification of the Constitution Digital Edition; The debates in the Federal Convention of 1787; and HeinOnline has numerous resources on the creation of our constitution.
