Hunter teaches a two-semester sequence in constitutional law and serves as the university's pre-law advisor.

Constitution Day, created by federal legislation in 2004, commemorates Sept. 17, 1787, the date that the 39 delegates to the Constitution Convention signed the newly created United States Constitution. The delegates hoped that this new framework for a national government would provide a permanent guarantee of the political liberties achieved in the Revolution.

This event is sponsored by the UWG Department of Political Science and Planning, the American Democracy Project, and Ingram Library. For further information email chendric@westga.edu or call (678) 839-5337.
