About this program:

Since 2001, the American Bar Association Division for Public Education has conducted the Leon Jaworski public program series to commemorate Law Day. The Jaworski public programs have examined themes of law, politics, and culture and have operated on the premise that exploring fundamental legal identities and attributes help us better understand who we are as Americans and as global citizens.

This Leon Jaworski Public Program focuses on the history and relevance of the Thirteenth Amendment, in commemoration of the sesquicentennial of its ratification by the states and incorporation into the U.S. Constitution in December 1865. The Thirteenth was the first of the trio of Reconstruction Amendments, which, over time, have transformed our constitutional order.
