American Bar Association, Chicago, IL.
This booklet introduces ideas and materials for Law Day activities. Celebrated on May 1, Law Day is an annual opportunity to expand awareness of U.S. laws and the justice system and their valuable impact on our lives. The primary purpose of Law Day is to provide the opportunity for the public to reflect on U.S. legal heritage, the role of law in society, and the rights guaranteed under the Constitution. The booklet outlines programs for Law Day including a film festival, community forums, conversations on pluralism and identity, school-based competitions, on-air talk shows, and comparative law forums. Suggestions for planning a Law Day program include establishing a planning committee, recruiting speakers, conducting publicity, site selection, and budgeting. A planning timeline outlines the months during which organizational activities should take place, beginning with forming a committee in September through the events in May and presentations of awards the following August. The booklet catalogues materials that planners may order for Law Day such as stickers, mugs, pencils, letterhead, books, and videos. (JD)
