The modern judiciary system and the U.S. Constitution will be the focus of Rochester Institute of Technology’s Constitution Day lecture.

James Stoner Jr., professor of political science at Louisiana State University, will present the featured talk. The event—free and open to the public—will take place from 7:30 to 9 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 21, in RIT’s Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science auditorium.

Stoner is the author of two books, Common-Law Liberty: Rethinking American Constitutionalism and Common Law and Liberal Theory: Coke, Hobbes and the Origins of American Constitutionalism. He is currently a Centennial Scholar with the American Political Science Association in Washington, D.C.

Constitution Day was mandated by Congress in December 2004 and requires educational institutions receiving federal funding to provide programs about the U.S. Constitution on or near the anniversary of its founding, Sept. 17, 1787.

The event is sponsored by RIT and the College of Liberal Arts.
