Virtual Law Day Art Contest

Changing the Constitution- Formally and Informally

As the Law Day 2022 theme notes, defining and refining the words of the Constitution might be our oldest national tradition. Throughout our nation’s history, we have changed the Constitution through many different avenues and for a plethora of reasons and causes. And although most of most of us are familiar with the formal way to change the Constitution, through the amendment process, it is by far not the only means to make refine the blueprint of our government.
