Retired attorney and Constitutional expert Michael H. Gillick will explore the foundations of the U.S. Constitution during Lakeland University's annual Constitution Day Lecture on Tuesday, Sept. 17, at 7 p.m. in the Bradley Theatre. This free lecture is open to the public.

In 2004, a federal law designated Sept. 17, the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution, as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day in the U.S.

Gillick will explore the foundation of our Constitution and discuss how the document is a commitment to the fundamental meaningfulness of every human being that is captured in the Declaration of Independence, which commits us to the inalienable rights of every human.

A member of the Milwaukee and American Bar Associations, State Bar of Wisconsin and Association of Trial Lawyers of America, Gillick received a bachelor's and master's degree from St. Louis University and received a law degree from Marquette University. He also received his Ph.D. in philosophy from Marquette.

Gillick was a partner at Gillick, Wicht, Gillick & Graf where he represented injured workers in worker's compensation and related claims. He was recently appointed to be a Commissioner of the Labor & Industry Review Commission. Gillick is a respected scholar and speaker on the philosophical basis for Constitutional law and its implications for justice in society.
