The United States Constitution was drafted in Philadelphia in 1787 at the Constitutional Convention. However, many delegates felt that the document was not truly complete, since it did not include a  list of rights that offered people protections from abuses of power by the government. These delegates felt that the lack of these rights would prevent ratification by the States, and after further deliberations, crafted ten Amendments to the Constitution that are known collectively as the Bill of Rights.

In this hour long workshop,  we will explore the First Amendment, using cases and examples that will cover both the Founders’ intent and further interpretation by the judiciary.
