We launched the Colorado Law Constitution Day Project in September 2011 in honor of Constitution Day. In September 2015, dozens of volunteers visited more than 80 classrooms around Colorado, offering an interactive lesson plan that raised the tough questions surrounding the relationship between the First Amendment and Colorado’s law prohibiting discrimination in public accommodations.
This fall, students, lawyers, and law professors will visit classrooms all over the state for the 2017 Colorado Law Constitution Day Project from September 11-22. This year’s lesson plan requires students to grapple with the relationship between the First Amendment and a school’s responsibility to maintain a disciplined teaching environment.
