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 an educational lesson from a New Mexico attorney about the U.S. Constitution. Educators and students will be provided Constitution booklets to keep as well! 

Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787.

Constitution Day presentations will be given by volunteer attorneys during the week of Nov. 7 - 11, 2022!

PLEASE NOTE: As an organization, we will be celebrating Constitution Day later this year. We will observe during Election Week on Nov. 7 - 11, 2022 in order to keep with the theme of celebrating our government.

For Educators: 

Thank you for your interest in the YLD's Constitution Day program! Our volunteer attorneys look forward to adding your students to the 39,000 New Mexico fifth-graders that have been served during this program's lifetime.
