Law Day


"American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters"
Each year, the nation observes Law Day during the month of May. Law Day is designed to educate people of all ages about the legal system and to celebrate the American heritage of liberty, justice and equality.

Pennsylvania takes a slightly different approach to observing Law Day by focusing on children. Through classroom visits by lawyers and judges and an outstanding set of free law-related lesson plans prepared for K-College classrooms, the Pennsylvania Bar Association and county bar associations across the commonwealth work with schools to educate children about their legal rights and responsibilities in the new millennium. The free lessons and materials are designed to be informative and engaging for all students. Law Day provides Pennsylvania lawyers and judges with a wonderful opportunity to become involved in their local communities. Law Day is funded by the Pennsylvania Bar Foundation.
