Constitutional Law Webcast Series

The Constitution became the supreme law of the land over 200 years ago, and yet its provisions continue to be the subject of intense debate and court interpretation. It is the source of all government powers and it provides important limitations on government that protects the fundamental rights of citizens. As circumstances and public opinion evolve, so too do the interpretations offered by the courts. Join Minnesota CLE as we explore recent developments and trends in Constitutional law from gun rights to abortion access as well as search and seizure, speedy trials, voting rights and more! This webcast series will cover several hot button topics that you won’t want to miss!
