Law Day

The Law Day Conference annually brings together 600 high school students, judges, attorneys, and teachers to discuss and debate topical legal and social issues of relevance to the student demographic. Past topics include privacy and social media, trying juveniles as adults, and legal issues involving police confrontations.

Fall 2020 Virtual Law Day

This year’s program will be conducted virtually through live webinars (lasting approximately 1 hour). While each of the webinars will be recorded, we recommend live participation if possible. Teachers are encouraged to treat this event as a virtual field trip and excuse students from their regularly scheduled class so that they may attend.
