Constitution and Citizenship Day
In order to comply with federal regulations requiring the development of educational programming to celebrate Constitution Day in September of each year, Williamson College provides faculty, students and staff with access to U.S. Constitution Day educational resources, guest lectures and other information annually. On Monday, September 11 at 6:00 pm, Attorney Larry Crain will share his thoughts on the Constitution.
Larry L. Crain is a nationally recognized constitutional lawyer, frequent lecturer, and commentator. He has litigated, debated and practiced widely in the area of constitutional law and human rights. Crain’s concern for First Amendment issues, particularly the rights of individuals to be free of religious discrimination, led him early in his legal career to serve as General Counsel for the Rutherford Institute and later as Senior Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice where he litigated a broad spectrum of constitutional issues on a national level before the United States Supreme Court, as well as the Third, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Ninth Circuit Courts of Appeal, the Supreme Court of Massachusetts, the Supreme Court of North Carolina and the Supreme Court of Tennessee.
Crain’s victories in the area of constitutional law and civil rights have been the subject of numerous newspaper, magazine and television profiles, ranging from CNN, Inside Edition, Fox News, the New York Times, Washington Post, Good Morning America, ABC News, and NBC News, as well as several international newspapers. He has also been the subject of three profile articles by the Tennessean for his accomplishments in the area of constitutional litigation.
In 2012, Crain’s concern over the legal issues facing churches and religious ministries led him to found the Church Law Institute, a non-profit legal and educational ministry serving churches across the United States. Today, CLI is providing vital legal services to churches in states all across the United States.
