Law Day 2012

LAW DAY 2012
"I Have a Dream ..."

Law Day began in 1958 when President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed Law Day to strengthen our great heritage of liberty, justice, and equality under the law. This year the Pennsylvania Bar Association is celebrating our 12th year of Law Day activities. The theme for Pennsylvania's 2012 celebration is "I Have a Dream "

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 free law-related lesson plan guide book in all schools. A copy of the lesson plan guide book is available as a PDF document for you to download.
