Law Related Education: Longtime ‘We the People’ Coach Invited to National Program
Mike Brosnan, a Gorham High School teacher whose classes are regular participants in the “We the
People …The Citizen and the Constitution” competitions, has been invited to attend the John Marshall Seminar, a constitutional law program taking place in Richmond, Va., next month.
Brosnan’s Gorham High School teams have won the state championship five of the 19 times they have competed over the 20 years that the We the People competition has been sponsored by the NHBA Law Related Education program in NH.
The John Marshall Seminar is funded through the John Marshall Foundation and co-sponsored by the Center for Civic Education, which provides funding to the NHBA to support the We the People program. The seminar centers on constitutional issues, particularly the philosophy of John Marshall, the fourth Chief Justice of the United States, who is considered one of the most influential interpreters of the U.S. Constitution.
Brosnan was nominated by the NHBA LRE Program.
