Law Week 2016 Poster and Video Contest

The San Diego County Bar Association would like to invite your school to celebrate freedom as part of the National Law Week Celebration (May 1-6).  In celebration of the 58th anniversary of Law Week, the San Diego County Bar Association and the Lawyer Referral and Information Service encourage your school’s participation in our Law Week poster and video 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 2016 is: The Preamble

We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
