Law Day is May 1 – Are You In?
VBA President Judith Dillon is focusing in her presidential year on the pipeline of Legal talent in Vermont. (See her President’s column on page five of the current issue of the Vermont Bar Journal). She’s encouraging lawyers around the state to reach out to their local schools and youth organizations as part of this effort. (The pipeline starts with school kids). Law Day, an annual event organized by the American Bar Association, happens on May 1 each year. Law Day provides one prime opportunity for this kind of interaction.
This year’s theme is “Voices of Democracy.” In this election year, the theme encourages, “Americans to participate in the 2024 elections by deepening their understanding of the electoral process; discussing issues in honest and civil ways; turning out to vote; and, finally, helping to move the country forward after free and fair elections.”
The ABA has a wealth of resources to share with attorneys who want to carry the message into their communities. This is a great project for county bars or firms or even individuals who want to contribute civics education to their communities.
