The Claremont Institute recently celebrated Constitution Day with Dr. John Eastman and our Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence. We commemorated 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 also featured a discussion with the recipient of this year’s Ronald Reagan Jurisprudence Award, Judge Edith Jones, during a private luncheon.
