The San Diego County Bar Association would like to invite your school to celebrate freedom as part of the National Law Week Celebration (April 28 - May 3, 2014).  In celebration of the 56th anniversary of Law Week, the San Diego County Bar Association and Lawyer Referral and Information Service encourage your school’s participation in our Law Week poster and essay contests.

Law week offers lawyers, teachers, judges and concerned citizens the opportunity to explore how our Constitution, laws and legal system have helped preserve and protect the freedoms Americans hold so dear. 

The theme for Law Day 2015 is:
Magna Carta: Symbol of Freedom Under Law

Perhaps more than any other document in human history, Magna Carta has come to embody a simple but enduring truth: No one, no matter how powerful, is above the law. In the eight centuries that have elapsed since Magna Carta was sealed in 1215, it has taken root as an international symbol of the rule of law and as an inspiration for many basic rights Americans hold dear today, including due process, habeas corpus, trial by jury, and the right to travel. As we mark the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, join us on Law Day, May 1, 2015, in commemorating this “Great Charter of Liberties,” and rededicating ourselves to advancing the principle of rule of law here and abroad.
