Celebrate Your Freedom--Assuring Equal Justice for All. Law Day 2002 Planning Guide.
White, Charles, Ed.
The theme for Law Day 2002 was set long before the tragic events of September 11, 2001, and its aftermath. The vision of Law Day planners was to plan programs on how the courts and legal system seek to assure equal access to justice for all people. This guide gives planners the tools for programs and discussions on legal aid, the "pro bono publico" activities of lawyers, public defender programs, and other ways the legal profession tries to deliver legal services to those in need. The guide helps planners or teachers put on programs and discussions on the courts, such as how to assure their independence from outside pressure, ways to reach out to the public with needed information, and methods to make them accessible. The 2002 Law Day Planning Guide also contains: ideas about how to build coalitions with a variety of legal groups, schools, and community organizations; talking points on equal justice issues; activities and lessons for all grade levels; and suggested programming for reaching adult groups.
