MORGANTOWN, WEST VIRGINIA — West Virginia University’s annual observance of Constitution Day will focus on the right to an education.
A panel of WVU Law professors will lead the discussion starting at 12 p.m. on September 17 in the Marlyn E. Lugar Courtroom at the law school.
Admission is free and the public is invited to attend.
This year’s Constitution Day panelists are Robert Bastress, John W. Fisher II Professor of Law; Anne Lofaso, Arthur B. Hodges Professor of Law; and John Taylor, Jackson Kelly Professor of Law.
Former West Virginia senator Robert Byrd (1917-2010) sponsored the legislation that established Constitution Day in 2004. The law requires that all publicly funded educational institutions provide special programming on or near that day every year.
