Officially held May 1, Law Day was first declared by President Dwight Eisenhower in 1958 as a special day of celebration for the people of the United States to celebrate our liberties and cultivate respect for the law in our country. The BRBF's nationally recognized Law Day program is typically held May 1, but this year, our 2013 Law Day event will be held Wednesday, May 1. LSU Law Professor Christopher Tyson will be our guests speaker.
Local middle and high school students are invited to witness a formal opening of court for the naturalization of new United States citizens and then proceed to the 19th Judicial District Court, The Family Court and Baton Rouge City Court for interactive sessions with a panel of judges, lawyers and law enforcement officers. Activities leading up to Law Day include poster, essay and video contests.
