Two Outstanding Opportunities: Law Day and Project Citizen

Lawyers and Judges Make Good Teachers

Two big events are coming up this spring for the NHBA Law Related Education (LRE) program. Law Day, also known as ALIES (a Lawyer and Judge in Every School), offers Bar members a unique opportunity to visit classrooms and talk to students about how the law works. It takes place on Friday, May 7 this year. On that day, the courts allow continuances on behalf of lawyers and judges who take part.

The program is very popular with all class levels, from grade school through high school, so whether you work best with little kids or with teenagers, thereís a place for you.

Giving Students a Chance to Shine

On Friday, May 14, the Project Citizen State Showcase will again be held at the Legislative Office Building in Concord. If you have never had the chance to be a judge at this event, consider doing so this year. Middle school students from around the state present portfolios (posters and written materials) at a simulated legislative hearing, supporting projects they have chosen. They try to get laws changed or initiatives adopted.

The Project Citizen program acquaints young people with the process of law and teaches them how ordinary citizens can have a voice in changing/improving life on planet Earth, whether itís in their own back yards or at the national level. The highest-rated portfolio will go on to be evaluated at the National Showcase, held each year in conjunction with the National Conference of State Legislatures Legislative Summit.

If you are interested in participating in either of these projects, please contact LRE Coordinator Robin E. Knippers at reknippers@nhbar.org or call her at 603-715-3259.

If you are in doubt about the status of any meeting, please call the Bar Center at 603-224-6942 before you head out.
