Commemorating the Constitution for the United States Being Signed by Congress on September 17, 1787


The historic document known as the U.S. constitution is the basic foundation upon which our country was built. It defines the roles and responsibilities of our government and secures the personal freedom of our citizens.

"Constitution Day" on September 17 celebrates the ratification of the U.S. constitution, so please take a moment to view it, read it, or learn more about the constitution, the amendments, or the founding fathers who signed it.

View a presentation on Free Speech by constitutional scholar and former Dean of the UCI Law School, Erwin Chemerinsky.
