Practitioner Information

Mission Statement The mission of The Constitutional Sources Project is to increase understanding, facilitate research, and encourage discussion of the U.S. Constitution by connecting individuals — including students, teachers, lawyers and judges — with the documentary history of its creation, ratification, and amendment. The ConSource team not only curates important digital collections of historical materials, but also creates free research reports, educational resources, and host educational programs to meet the specific needs of scholars and authors, legal practitioners and government officials, educators and students, journalists and the general public. ConSource also hosts an annual student competition called the Virtual Supreme Court Competition, which is now entering its seventh year.
