In commemoration of Constitution Day, the Law Library of Congress will host a discussion about the importance of religious liberty in America and its historical connection to the U.S. Constitution with Princeton University professor of jurisprudence Robert P. George and Supreme Court correspondent Jess Bravin of The Wall Street Journal.

This public event will serve as the Law Library’s annual commemoration of Constitution Day and Citizenship Day – a U.S. federal observance to commemorate the signing of the Constitution, and “recognize all who, by coming of age or by naturalization, have become citizens.” Constitution Day was established by Congress in 2004 to recognize the ratification of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787.

For those not able to attend the program, the Law Library of Congress will have a member of its staff live tweet the event via Twitter @LawLibCongress, using #ConstitutionDay. A webcast of the event will be posted after the video has been processed.
