Celebrate Constitution Day!

In the spirit of Constitution Day and to aid in the fulfillment of Public Law 108-447 Sec. 111 Division J - SEC. 111(b), the YLD organizes a public education program that provides participating New Mexico fifth-grade classes with U.S. Constitution booklets to keep and an educational lesson from a New Mexico attorney.

Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787 and we will celebrate during the week of Sept. 11-15, 2017.

For Attorneys

Please accept this offer to earn pro bono hours and connect with New Mexico's youth. Educator feedback reflects that this is a major resource to schools and an exciting and inspiring experience for students. Over 33,000 New Mexico students have been served during this program's lifetime.

Time frames for the lesson vary depending on school schedules and class size. Average presentations are roughly one hour and range from 20 to 150 student participants. The State Bar will print and distribute the U.S. Constitution booklets to the schools and will provide volunteers with education materials upon request.
