Celebrate Constitution Day!

In the spirit of Constitution Day and to aid in the fulfillment of Public Law 108-447 Sec. 111 Division J - SEC. 111(b), the State Bar Young Lawyers Division organizes a public education program that provides participating New Mexico fifth-grade classes with U.S. Constitution booklets to keep and an educational lesson from a New Mexico attorney.
Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787 and we will celebrate during the week of Sept. 17-21, 2018. Sign-up information will be available soon.
