b'CONSTITUTIONAL DEFENSEWe the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure Domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.The preamble of the Constitution is clear: Justice is a right bestowed to all men and women of the United States. There are checks and balances along the way to ensure the rights promised in the Constitution are upheld; from the White House to Congress to the Supreme Court, every branch of government is responsible for creating our nations laws to protect the rights set forth in arguably the countrys most important document. However, on a smaller scale, who protects the everyday men and women walking our streets each day and enforces those laws? That job is assigned to the nations lawyers, who are officers of the court and closely associated with the judicial branch ofthe government. By Hayley Price Originally created on September 17, 1787, the Constitution is the supreme law of the country which delineates the national framework of the government.'
