As a refresher, the United States Constitution was written in 1787, ratified in 1789; and is considered the highest law in the land. The Constitution provides the bases for all three branches of government: the Executive Branch, Judicial Branch, and Legislative Branch. Addition-ally, the Constitution is comprised of the following sections:
1. The Preamble which describes the theme of the document and the government.
2. The seven Articles establish the structure and function of government including Article III that institutes the judicial branch of which we are all a member.
3. The twenty-seven Amendments; the first ten of which are referred to as the Bill of Rights.
The National Conference of Bankruptcy Clerks takes pride in knowing our founding fathers created such an insoluble foundation which provides us the opportunities we have as citizens of this great country, the United States of America.
