Whether we’re aware of it or not, the U.S. Constitution has a profound influence on every single moment of our lives, says Martin Kuz, a freelance journalist and frequent contributor to the Thomson Reuters-owned publications, Super Lawyers.

This weekend, Kuz will spend three days examining the 223-year-old document and the impact that it has on the practice of news reporting as a fellow at the Peter Jennings Project for Journalists and the Constitution, a conference starting this Friday in Philadelphia.

Every year, the Peter Jennings Project brings together mid-career journalists and students for an event designed to facilitate a deeper understanding of constitutional issues, according to the project’s website. Featured topics this year include Supreme Court nominations, Miranda rights and birthright citizenship.

Kuz, who grew up a stone’s throw away from Thomson Reuters’ Eagan location in the town of Savage, Minn., earned his spot at the weekend conference in part through his work for the Super Lawyers publications. Within Super Lawyers, he’s become well-known for his intricately woven narratives about highly accomplished attorneys and the major cases they’ve argued.

Perhaps most notably, Kuz interviewed the general counsel of Google, Kent Walker, and detailed for Super Lawyers’ readers some of the legal issues – and their global, history-altering ramifications – facing the groundbreaking company.

Through his Peter Jennings Project experience, Kuz hopes that his comprehension of the Constitution will flourish, and ultimately produce in him a greater mastery of his craft, for the benefit of Super Lawyers readers, and consumers of news everywhere.
