Cornerstones of Democracy: Civics, Civility, and Collaboration
This year’s ABA Law Week theme, “Cornerstones of Democracy: Civics, Civility, and Collaboration” challenges us to think critically about the ways in which the Constitution exists within our communities and shapes where power resides within our constitutional democracy. Join us for a seminar led by Professor Steven D. Schwinn, Constitutional Law Professor at UIC Law,  to explore the different ways that the Constitution impacts our democracy.
