Michael’s Commentary

Michael Anthony PeroutkaA Christian and an attorney, Michael Anthony Peroutka is co-founder of Institute on the Constitution (IOTC), headquartered in Pasadena, Maryland. He is a graduate of Loyola College (now University) in Maryland and University of Baltimore School of Law.

Discovering that the teaching of the law in America had been perverted away from its original design, Michael determined to investigate America’s founding and the roots of our law, in English Common Law and the Bible. This led to the founding of Institute on the Constitution, which is an educational outreach of the law firm of Peroutka and Peroutka, also in Pasadena, Maryland. IOTC presents the real view—the founders’ view—which is the American view of law and government.
