Scott Griffith presents 6th Annual Constitution Program to Holy Cross Parish School students

Scott F. Griffith, a partner in the Philadelphia office, presented a program on the U.S. Constitution to students and teachers from Philadelphia’s Holy Cross Parish School on May 21, 2015. The Constitution Program is presented annually by Rawle & Henderson in partnership with the Women for Greater Philadelphia (website: www.womenforgreaterphiladelphia.org), stewards of Laurel Hill Mansion, the restored summer home of William Rawle (founder of Rawle & Henderson LLP) and the Rawle family on the banks of the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia.

Rawle & Henderson donated copies of the booklet The United States Constitution: What It Says, What It Means to the students at this year’s Constitution Program. The booklet, produced by Oxford University Press, provides a clear explanation of each Article and Amendment, and features an introduction by Caroline Kennedy and afterword by David Eisenhower. The event was held at Holy Cross Parish School.  This was the fifth annual presentation on the Constitution the firm has made to the Holy Cross Parish School students.
