Bar associations celebrate 'Law Day'

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Bar associations in Evansville and Indianapolis will celebrate “Law Day” with local events involving high schools. The theme of this year’s day is “No Courts, No Justice, No Freedom.”

On Thursday, the annual mock trials for Evansville high school students took place at Vanderburgh Circuit and Superior courts. Evansville Bar Association member attorneys act as advisors to the teams. A pizza party at the CK Newsome Center following the mock trials focused on the Law Day theme. The program included a trivia game based on questions related to the theme.

The Indianapolis Bar Association will visit Shortridge Magnet High School May 1 to showcase careers related to the legal field that don’t require a law degree, in order to present a more rounded perspective of the resources needed within the legal field. Representatives will include court reporters, legal software specialists, and probation officers.

Former Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard will be the keynote speaker at the Allen County Bar Association’s annual Law Day luncheon April 30. Fred Gilbert and Ana Giusti, of the Center for Nonviolence, will be honored with the Liberty Bell Award.

Evansville-area attorneys will also participate in a Liturgy of the Law Celebration May 4 at 11:30 a.m.

Law Day, which is May 1, was proclaimed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1957 to call attention to the heritage of liberty preserved by the law.

  1. by the time anybody gets to such files they will probably have been totally vacuumed anyways. they're pros at this at universities. anything to protect their incomes. Still, a laudable attempt. Let's go for throat though: how about the idea of unionizing football college football players so they can get a fair shake for their work? then if one of the players is a pain in the neck cut them loose instead of protecting them. if that kills the big programs, great, what do they have to do with learning anyways? nada. just another way for universities to rake in the billions even as they skate from paying taxes with their bogus "nonprofit" status.

  2. Um the affidavit from the lawyer is admissible, competent evidence of reasonableness itself. And anybody who had done law work in small claims court would not have blinked at that modest fee. Where do judges come up with this stuff? Somebody is showing a lack of experience and it wasn't the lawyers

  3. My children were taken away a year ago due to drugs, and u struggled to get things on track, and now that I have been passing drug screens for almost 6 months now and not missing visits they have already filed to take my rights away. I need help.....I can't loose my babies. Plz feel free to call if u can help. Sarah at 765-865-7589

  4. Females now rule over every appellate court in Indiana, and from the federal southern district, as well as at the head of many judicial agencies. Give me a break, ladies! Can we men organize guy-only clubs to tell our sob stories about being too sexy for our shirts and not being picked for appellate court openings? Nope, that would be sexist! Ah modernity, such a ball of confusion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmRsWdK0PRI

  5. LOL thanks Jennifer, thanks to me for reading, but not reading closely enough! I thought about it after posting and realized such is just what was reported. My bad. NOW ... how about reporting who the attorneys were raking in the Purdue alum dollars?
