The Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications is presenting “The Constitution for Teachers,” a half-day workshop to examine the document that is the primary law of the land.
The workshop will be held at the school in Manchester from 9 a.m. to noon on Aug. 7. It is designed to provide curriculum ideas and discussion points for teachers and school media advisers. Registration is $30. Register at www.loebschool.org or by calling 627-0005.
The workshop will be led by attorney Gregory V. Sullivan, who has argued before the New Hampshire Supreme Court in several landmark First Amendment and public access cases.
Sullivan will explore the Bill of Rights and the five freedoms of the First Amendment as well as how the three branches of the federal government interact with each other, with the states and with the constitutional rights of Americans.
The session is supported by New Hampshire’s Constitution Day essay program, which includes nine newspapers. It will provide teachers with information for general studies on the Constitution and include discussion about next fall’s statewide Constitution Day essay contest question.
Sullivan is president of Malloy & Sullivan, Lawyers Professional Corporation, a law firm with offices in Manchester and Hingham, Mass. He teaches First Amendment Law at Suffolk University Law School and the Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications and is corporate counsel for the New Hampshire Union Leader. Sullivan also serves as special assistant attorney general for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
