High School Teachers Get Schooled on Law Day Message

ABA President Lamm, New Republic Editor Featured at ABA Law Day Program

Among ABA Law Day events held in Washington, D.C., was an April 26 National Press Club luncheon seminar for high school teachers participating in programs by the Close Up Foundation, a nonprofit organization that educates and inspires young people to become informed and engaged citizens. Featured speaker at the luncheon was Jeffrey Rosen, professor of law at The George Washington University and the legal affairs editor of The New Republic.

ABA President Carolyn Lamm also participated. Click here to listen to the program.

This year’s Law Day theme – “Law in the 21st Century: Enduring Traditions, Emerging Challenges” – sets its focus on the dramatic changes in the law as it seeks to shape and adapt to new conditions presented at the beginning of this second decade of the century.

The ABA Division for Public Education also maintains the Law Day Web site, www.lawday.org, that offers a wide range of Law Day program planning materials for schools, court houses, civic groups, lawyers and others.

    can teachers tell students that they are going to withhold a students credit because of personal reasons?
