About Constitution Day
For several years, UNC School of Law has served as the host of the campus-wide UNC-Chapel Hill Constitution Day celebration. Each year on September 17, pursuant to a 2004 federal statute, U.S. schools and colleges take time to celebrate and commemorate the day on which the Constitution of the United States was signed. Constitution Day presents an opportunity to reflect upon the deeper meanings of the Constitution and the hopes it embodies for the future of the country and the world.
