MC to Celebrate Constitution Day
September 4, 2007In September 1787, the Philadelphia Convention adjourned and referred the new Constitution it had just written to the United States Congress.
Like other institutions of higher learning, MC will celebrate Constitution Day. We have chosen to do so on Tuesday, September 18, at 4:30 p.m. in Board Room, B.C. Rogers Student Center.
Speaking will be Professor of Law Matthew Steffey of the Mississippi College School of Law. The distinguished legal scholar has taught at MC since 1990. He took his BA from the University of South Florida, with majors in English and American Literature; his JD from Florida State University, where he was a member of the Order of the Coif and Law Review and served as a Bailey Scholar; and his LL.M from Columbia University School of Law.
Professor Steffey has special expertise in Constitutional Law, Civil Rights, and the First Amendment. He has written and spoken extensively on constitutional issues, including legal commentary for Mississippi Public Broadcasting. He is an insightful and dynamic speaker!
Students, faculty, staff and the general public are all cordially invited to Dr. Steffey's presentation on Tuesday, September 18, at 4:30 p.m.
