The Byron R. White Center for the Study of American Constitutional Law

The work of the Byron R. White Center is premised on the belief that informed and engaged citizens are essential to our constitutional democracy. Our mission is to:

  • support excellence in constitutional legal scholarship,
  • offer opportunities for Colorado Law students to serve the community, and
  • expand public knowledge and informed discussion about the Constitution.


U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia recently spoke at the Fourth Annual John Paul Stevens Lecture. Check out the news coverage.
