A Lawyer & Judge in Every School
Law Day: May 2018
A Lawyer & Judge in Every School - 2018
This event pairs attorneys and judges with classrooms throughout the state to discuss concepts of law, rights and responsibilities of citizenship, and additional legal issues consistent with student interest and the course curriculum. For Law Day 2018, the NHBA LRE program encourages attorney presenters to bring one of the following topics, or a topic of your choice (see resources to the right), to classrooms across the state.
2018 ABA Law Day Theme
Separation of Powers:
Framework for Freedom

The U.S. Constitution sets out a system of government with distinct and independent branches—Congress, the Presidency, and a Supreme Court. It also defines legislative, executive, and judicial powers and outlines how they interact. These three separate branches share power, and each branch serves as a check on the power of the others. “Ambition must be made to counteract ambition,” James Madison explained in Federalist 51. Why? Madison believed that the Constitution’s principles of separation of powers and checks and balances preserve political liberty. They provide a framework for freedom. Yet, this framework is not self-executing. We the people must continually act to ensure that our constitutional democracy endures, preserving our liberties and advancing our rights. The Law Day 2018 theme enables us to reflect on the separation of powers as fundamental to our constitutional purpose and to consider how our governmental system is working for ourselves and our posterity.

When Love Hurts
When Love Hurts educates students about dating violence and helps them identify dating violence in their relationships. The focus of the program is to educate the students about their legal rights in obtaining civil restraining orders if they are the subject of dating violence. The program is also designed to discourage dating violence by educating the students about the potential ramifications of committing dating violence through a review of the potential criminal consequences and the consequences of being the subject of a civil protective order.
