Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project
The Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project is a
national program designed to mobilize talented law students to teach courses on
constitutional law and juvenile justice in public high schools. This movement
for constitutional literacy is rooted in the belief that students will profit
for a lifetime from learning the system of rights and responsibilities under
the U.S. Constitution.
Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law’s Chapter partners with South Mountain High School and ASU Preparatory Academy. The Marshall-Brennan Fellows teach constitutional principles and appellate advocacy to high school students three times a week.
Additionally, our Chapter hosts a Regional Moot Court Competition on campus. The high school students have the opportunity to present the oral arguments they have prepared involving First and Fourth Amendment issues. he high school students have the opportunity to present the oral arguments they have prepared involving First and Fourth Amendment issues. The highest scoring students are then selected to represent ASU’s Chapter at the National Moot Court Competition in Boston.
In our eight years of existence, ASU’s Chapter has produced two national champions, as well as many semi-finalists and finalists, and all of our National Competition participants have gone on to college. Moreover, the success of our team at the National Competition has helped to increase the reputation of the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law.
Help us send our top high school students to the Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project National Moot Court Competition in Boston. With your support, we can reach our goal and provide a lifetime of benefits for our high school students and law students alike.
