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.
