Constitution Game Show

  • During the Constitution Week events, UVU students participated in "Constitution or Declaration?", a game which required them to determine whether a particular quote is from the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence.

During his keynote, Dr. Scheiber addressed the effects of martial law on the constitutional liberties of the inhabitants of Hawaii during World War II. He also met privately with a group of constitutional studies students to discuss ways they could better prepare for graduate studies and law school.
