Welcome to the Program on Constitutional Structure
Welcome to the Notre Dame Law School Program on Constitutional Structure. Our Program helps Notre Dame law students obtain a world-class education in constitutional law. We host events at our South Bend and London campuses to examine pressing constitutional questions of domestic and global importance. We serve federal and state courts by educating first-rate judicial law clerks, attorneys, and other public servants.
Our mission is to advance interdisciplinary learning about how sound constitutional structures of government advance individual well-being and the common good. We support curricular programs of study, sponsor academic lectures and conferences, and engage with questions of constitutional development worldwide. By promoting the study of constitutional structures, we serve the needs of our students, the broader academic community, and the bench and bar—here and abroad.

Professor Valentino will be discussing the effect of trauma on childhood development as well as mental health resources in educational settings. Professor Madeira will be talking about the 2nd Amendment and we would also like to discuss tailoring legislation at increasing mental health access in schools to combat the issue of gun violence and mass shootings.…
