“Crime and the Constitution” will be the theme of a panel discussion at 5 p.m. on Sept. 19 in the large moot court room (room 129) in the Ohio Northern University College of Law. The event, which observes Constitution Day, is free and open to the public.

The discussion will take a multi-faceted approach toward the topic.

Bruce Frohnen, professor of law, will serve as moderator. Panelists include ONU faculty members Tristin Kilgallon, assistant professor in criminal justice, presenting “Police training and the Constitution”; Toni Clarke, professor of law, presenting “Kids, confessions and the Constitution”; and Robert Waters, associate professor of history, presenting “It’s impossible to commit malpractice against a prisoner. But should it be?”

Constitution Day observes the recognition of the U.S. Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. Delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the document Sept. 17, 1787, in Philadelphia, Pa., and Constitution Day is regularly marked around that date.
