Each year the VBA distributes, at no charge, copies of the United States Constitution to classrooms and community centers around the state. VBA Members also volunteer to visit schools to speak about the importance of the Constitution and to discuss the Bill of Rights with the students.  If you are interested in having a volunteer lawyer come to your school and speak, please email Education Director Jennifer Emens-Butler at jeb@vtbar.org.

The Constitution booklets include The Declaration of Independence and other materials helpful for the study of the Constitution. 

The VBA also hosts an annual panel presentation that includes Vermont Supreme Court Justices and Vermont Superior Court Judges speaking about different aspects of the Constitution. The videotaped presentations are one hour in length, and are available as an additional resource to you.
