Constitution 101: The Meaning and History of the Constitution” is a 10-week online course presented by Hillsdale College.  Though registration is free, the college appreciates donations to support their offering.

Free Online Hillsdale College Courses  Our experience with Hillsdale College is, they remain supportive of our national Constitution and and have generated some excellent programs to help people understand the necessity for learning and applying the law.  Most of the problems people face in our country today can be resolved only by the people learning the law and applying the same.  Their monthly perodical Imprimis often has excelent articles; like the September, 2014 article on: “The History and Danger of Administrative Law”.
