In honor of Constitution Day on Sept. 17, Dennis Coyle, associate professor of politics at CUA, will discuss how a complex set of legal, cultural and institutional elements are reflected in the language and structure of the Constitution and how these elements remain essential to understanding its relevance today.

Coyle is also a pre-law adviser at CUA, coordinator of the graduate program in politics and an adjunct scholar at the American Enterprise Institute.

Constitution Day was established by Congress in 2004 to mark the anniversary of the last day of the Constitutional Convention - Sept. 17, 1787 - when 39 of the 55 delegates signed the draft constitution.

The event is open to the public. A reception with refreshments will follow the lecture. For more information, call 202-219-5115.
