Visit Schools for Law Day – May 2

 
Have a fun day on Law Day – and gain a fresh perspective on your profession and our justice system by volunteering to visit schools on the 50th anniversary of Law Day on May 2.
The NHBA is already receiving inquiries from scores of schools around the state interested in having lawyers and judges speak to students about our legal system on May 2, this year’s 50th anniversary commemoration of Law Day.

Although Friday, May 2, is the day officially targeted as Law Day, teachers and lawyers may schedule visits on whatever days are mutually convenient.

The NHBA Web site has collected a number of resources geared to various grade levels to provide the NHBA volunteers with a variety of activities and lesson plans to choose from, ideally in conjunction with teachers in the classrooms.

As in past years, the Bar’s Law-Related Education coordinator, Robin Knippers, will assist in matching attorneys who volunteer with schools convenient to their homes or offices.

This year, the Bar Association is featuring several lesson plans as suggested activities, including:

RULES, RULES, RULES – Using the Eraser game to explain the importance of rules in the classroom and in the community. (Elementary level)

WHAT IS TRUTH? – Students will build skill in assessing the truth, and appreciate the human aspect of truth. (Middle school level)

• RULE OF LAW IN TIMES OF CRISIS – Discussion of incidents in history when the rule of law may have been undermined in response to perceived threats to society. (High school level)

Also, information is available about another curriculum, THE COST OF CREDIT, an educational program developed by a New York state bankruptcy court judge that aims to provide students with a better understanding of the costs of credit and the dangers of overspending or over reliance on credit. (High school level)

You should know…the NH Supreme Court has issued an order providing for scheduling flexibility for May 2 "to facilitate participation by as many lawyers and judges as possible in the New Hampshire Bar Association’s "A Lawyer and Judge in Every School" program in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Law Day."

Find the order, and more about Law Day at http://www.nhbar.org/law-related-education/default.asp.

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
