A Lawyer & Judge in Every School
Law Day: May 6, 2017
A Lawyer & Judge in Every School - 2017
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 2016, 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.
2017 ABA Law Day Theme
The 14th Amendment:
Transforming American Democracy
The 2017 theme provides the opportunity to explore the many ways that the Fourteenth Amendment has reshaped American law and society. Through its Citizenship, Due Process and Equal Protection clauses, this transformative amendment advanced the rights of all Americans. It also played a pivotal role in extending the reach of the Bill of Rights to the states. Ratified during Reconstruction a century and a half ago, the Fourteenth Amendment serves as the cornerstone of landmark civil rights legislation, the foundation for numerous federal court decisions protecting fundamental rights, and a source of inspiration for all those who advocate for equal justice under law.

Check back for 2017 Law Day theme resources. Until then, see below for resources from prior years.

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.
