Rehnquist Center banner logoI do enjoy Monday-morning-quarterbacking U.S. Supreme Court decisions. You too? Now imagine how great it would be if we also possessed deep knowledge to accompany our opinions.

That is kind of the thought behind the celebration of “Constitution Day” at law schools. In recognition of one of our nation’s founding documents, scholars and wise practitioners hold forth on recent opinions.

The University of Arizona Constitution Day event was a high point of my 2012 (and I covered it here). Unfortunately, it’s looking like I will be unable to attend this year’s event, to be held next Monday, September 16.

Is anyone else planning on attending? Would you like to write a blog post covering the highlights? Or do you just want to send photos? Write to me at
