Saturday November 4, 2017, Daryl Manhart was among the judges for the Marshall Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project Regional Competition held at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State. Approximately 80 students competed from South Mountain High School and Cesar Chavez High School. The program is designed to develop oral advocacy and critical thinking skills in the form of moot court competitions involving constitutional issues. The winners will go on to compete in a national competition in Washington D.C. Congratulations to all of the students who participated and best of luck to those proceeding to compete at the next level.

The Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project is a national program designed to mobilize talented second- and third-year law students, to teach courses on constitutional law and juvenile justice in public high schools. This movement for constitutional literacy is rooted in the belief that students will profit for a lifetime from learning the system of rights and responsibilities under the U.S. Constitution.
In the fall semester, Fellows teach weekly lessons on constitutional law and appellate advocacy to two South Mountain High School government classes in preparation of our Regional Competition. During the spring semester, Fellows work with our four finalists to perfect their arguments and delivery before representing the ASU chapter at the National Competition."
