LAW DAY 2006

LAW DAY 2006
“My World — My Responsibility”

Teaching kids about their legal rights and responsibilities is what this year’s Law Day program is all about. The theme for Pennsylvania’s celebration is “My World — My Responsibility.” Children of all ages will have the opportunity to explore the ways in which they can have an impact on our world.

The Pennsylvania Bar Association and local bar associations across the state will sponsor Law Day activities throughout the month of May. In addition, schools, lawyers and judges are encouraged to work together to arrange for classroom visits and to use the PBA’s new, free law-related lesson plan book in all schools.

Pennsylvania’s Law Day 2006 celebration is coordinated by the PBA Law-Related Education Committee and funded by the Pennsylvania Bar Foundation.
