Institute on the Constitution is a course of study consisting of twelve sessions with one session conducted every week. This weekly session can be held on a weekday evening in a home or office setting, in a community hall or public library, or in a Sunday school or Bible Study setting. The sessions are typically an hour and a half in length and begin with a welcome and introduction to the lesson of the day, which is done by a leader or "host".
We want to make clear at the outset that there are no special qualifications for the person acting as "host" or "leader". This person need not be an attorney, professional speaker, or anyone with any special knowledge of the United States Constituion.
This student manual is intended as the "textbook" for each student attending the course.
