February 14th, 2012 – A Day to Celebrate!

Today is a big day – not only is it Valentine’s Day, but it is also Arizona’s 100th birthday!

Celebrate both holidays at the Centennial Marriage Event this afternoon, where you can tie the knot in a ceremony presided by Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Rebecca White Berch.

Or, attend The Arizona Supreme Court and the Arizona Constitution: The First Hundred Years, a panel discussion sponsored by the College of Law and the Arizona State Law Journal.   The event is taking place at the Sandra Day O’Connor U.S. Courthouse and will feature contributing authors to a special issue of the Law Journal addressing the role that the Arizona Supreme Court has played during Arizona’s first 100 years of statehood.

Finally, in celebration of Arizona’s birthday, be sure to check out The Arizona State Constitution, a new book in the Law Library collection.  This book offers a historical overview of Arizona’s constitutional development, from the adoption of the constitution through the changes it has undergone.  Particularly interesting is a section-by-section commentary which discusses the evolution and interpretation of each constitutional section, including significant court decisions.
