Each year, UNC School of Law organizes the campus-wide Constitution Day celebration to commemorate September 17, the day on which the Constitution of the United States was signed. Constitution Day allows schools and colleges across the country to reflect on United States history, the deeper meanings within the Constitution and hopes it represents for the future.
The law school will celebrate the federal observance this year on September 23 with an online panel about the Supreme Court of the United States.
Professors from the law school and political science department will discuss the past, present and future of the U.S. Supreme Court. This round table conversation will focus on the impact recent retirements from and appointments to the court have made on the court’s decisions. Panelists will discuss some of the court’s landmark decisions in the 2020 term and significant cases on the docket for the coming 2021 term.
