A Lawyer & Judge in Every School
Law Day 2016
A Lawyer & Judge in Every School - 2016
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.
2016 ABA Law Day Theme
Miranda: More than Words
In 2016, the nation marks the 50th anniversary of perhaps the nation’s best-known U.S. Supreme Court case, Miranda v. Arizona. The Miranda Warning has become ingrained in law enforcement and has permeated popular consciousness through countless recitations in films and television shows. Yet Miranda is only part of the story when it comes to the procedures for ensuring justice. The 2016 Law Day theme – Miranda: More than Words – will explore the procedural protections afforded to all of us by the U.S. Constitution, how these rights are safeguarded by the courts, and why the preservation of these principles is essential to our liberty.

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.
