Constitution Day

Constitution Day focuses on a major legal question or issue under the U.S. Constitution, traditionally in the form of a lecture held at the Law Library of Congress.  

 

Officially known as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day, this federal holiday is observed each year to commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787, and to "recognize all who, by coming of age or by naturalization, have become citizens." 

 

With support of the Friends and other contributors, the Library of Congress holds an annual Constitution Day program.

 

The Law Library of Congress event is free of charge and open to the public.
