LAW DAY 2014
Law Day is a national day recognized to celebrate the rule of law and its contributions to the freedoms citizens of our country enjoy. Law Day had its origin in 1957, when American Bar Association (ABA) President Charles S. Rhyne envisioned a special day for celebrating our legal system. In continuing with this tradition, 2014’s Law Day theme, "Every Vote Counts", encouraged Fulton County students in grades k-8 to participate in a creative contest demonstrating how the law guarantees our American freedoms, specifically the right to vote. Students in grades k-5 were invited to submit one piece of original artwork to showcase their interpretation of this year’s theme. Students in grades 6-8 were invited to submit video "mini-documentaries" highlighting the importance of voting to members of our community.
Chair of this year’s Law Day Committee, Superior Court of Fulton County Judge Robert C.I. McBurney, in conjunction with Law Day Committee member Mr. Patrick Longhi, Esq., would like to thank all of the students who participated and all of the members of the Law Committee who dedicated their time to execute this year’s events.
