In celebration of today—Constitution Day—judges in the Southern District of Florida and across the country will be partnering with lawyers from the Federal Bar Association to discuss civility and the Rule of Law to South Florida high school students.

On Sept. 22, as part of the FBA Annual Convention in Miami, judges and attorneys will present remotely and in the courtrooms and share civil discourse skills and discuss constitutional issues with students in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County public high schools in a “Civil Discourse and the Constitution” program. This program is an extension of the “Civil Discourse and Difficult Decisions” program. The Civil Discourse and Difficult Decisions program was created and piloted by the Southern District of Florida five years ago, now adopted by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts and other district courts throughout the country.
