Museum of the American Revolution

This event is hosted by The Kosciuszko Foundation, Philadelphia Chapter.

Registration is free.

E. M. Zechenter, J.D., Ph.D. and M. A. Kornilowicz, Esq. will discuss the principles of modern democracy and citizens’ rights as established by the U.S. and Polish constitutions and will explain historical legal context in which the Polish constitution arose. While both countries had distinct historical roots and underlying legal and constitutional traditions, their written constitutions were grounded in several shared legal principles, many of which survive to this day.

Post lecture, guests are invited to Cross Keys Café (located in the Museum of the American Revolution) for short networking event.
