State Bar of Michigan Offers Resources for Constitution Day Celebrations

9/7/11

The State Bar of Michigan's Law-Related Education and Public Outreach Committee offers resources to lawyers, teachers, and students to use in Constitution Day celebrations occurring this year on and around September 17.

Five PowerPoint presentations suitable for high school students on "The Right to a Jury Trial" and "Rights of the Accused," are available on the State Bar website, as well as Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendment word searches for elementary school students. "Educating for Everyday Democracy: The Jury Process" includes a story, case law summaries, and classroom activities designed to meet Michigan curriculum benchmarks identified in the materials. The website includes links to other statewide and national resources successfully used in past Constitution Day celebrations.

"We urge Michigan lawyers, teachers and students to celebrate the 224th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution and we are pleased to offer resources to support them," SBM President W. Anthony Jenkins said. Jenkins noted that the signing of the Constitution was one of the most important and influential events in American history.

More information and resources about Constitution Day are available online. Constitution Day bookmarks are available for distribution to Michigan students. For more information, contact Jennifer Williams at jwilliams@mail.michbar.org or (517) 346-6421.
