Constitution Day Celebration

The Claremont Institute invites you to celebrate Constitution Day with Dr. John Eastman and our Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence. We will be commemorating the 230th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution with panel discussions addressing some of the most pressing threats to our constitutional system. Our program will also feature a discussion with the recipient of this year’s Ronald Reagan Jurisprudence Award, Judge Edith Jones, during a private luncheon.
