The State Bar of Texas and Texas Young Lawyers Association are encouraging our association to hold editorial, photo, and poster contests in our communities incorporating the national Law Day theme, Miranda: More than Words.
We must submit our first-place local winners from each category to the State Bar for the statewide contest by Wednesday, March 30, 2016. The top three winners in each statewide category will be invited to the State Bar of Texas Law Day celebration, which will be held Monday, May 2, 2016 in Austin.
Here is the Law Day brochure.
Law Day is an excellent opportunity to educate the public on the importance of the rule of law and how our legal system strives to achieve justice. For a list of children’s books that compliment this year’s theme and for more information, visit the Law Day web page.
