Celebrate Your Freedom. Law Day 1998 Planning Guide.
White, Charles, Ed.
This planning guide can serve as the basis for innovative Law Day observances all over the United States. The guide offers suggestions for programs for schools and people in the community, as well as creative ways to reach the media. It also presents resources and ideas for conveying how the United States Constitution restrains unlawful arrests, unreasonable searches, secret trials, and other abuses that people around the world experience all too often. An important aspect of the rule of law, the independence of the judiciary, which protects and preserves these rights, is also highlighted. A collection of successful strategies for conducting practical law programs is contained in the guide. It concludes with information on two National Law Day Recognition Programs and details about how a teacher or community activist can receive recognition for his or her program and outstanding Law Day speech.
