Law Day celebrations
Judges and attorneys across Wisconsin develop programs and presentations to mark Law Day, celebrated on May 1. Celebrations often take place in county courthouses. Each year, the American Bar Association (ABA) selects a theme to go with Law Day. For 2013, that theme is Realizing the Dream: Equality for All. The ABA also provides a variety of material and resources on Law Day at: www.lawday.org.
Also available are five Law Day planning kits developed in the past by the Director of State Courts Office. Each provides timeless ideas for programs, contests and presentations, as well as mock trial scripts. Judges, court staff and lawyers who organize Law Day events are encouraged to report back to Court Information Officers Tom Sheehan so we can highlight efforts in The Third Branch newsletter.
