The National Constitution Center (NCC) has quickly become one of America's most respected institutions welcoming Presidents, Supreme Court Justices and foreign dignitaries. It was established by Congress in 1988 to increase public understanding of, and appreciation for the Constitution. NCC is an independent, non-partisan, and non-profit organization.
The purpose is to keep lawyers current, knowledgeable, and effective. The practice of law is heavily influenced by new laws, new regulations, recent case law interpretations, and skills of individual lawyers. NCC Conferences bring reliable, practical, up-to-date information to lawyers and others in the legal profession to help them be more informed and more effective. Attendance at NCC Conferences in the past 12 months was 42,000, up from 34,000 in the prior 12 months.
NCC attracts speakers who are among the most accomplished legal practitioners from around the country. They include, Attorneys General, lawyers who have won arguments before the Supreme Court, as well as recognized experts in their respective practice areas. The major criteria in speaker selection are that they have the knowledge and demonstrated track record illustrating their competence.
When credibility matters, the National Constitution Center is increasingly chosen as the venue for national and international leaders. For example:
