Attorneys celebrate Law Day in the classroom


INDIANAPOLIS (March 9, 2016) – The Indiana State Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Section is sponsoring a statewide Law Day program that matches lawyers with local schools. Law Day, held annually on May 1, is a national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law. In 2016, the nation marks the 50th anniversary of perhaps the best-known U.S. Supreme Court case, Miranda v. Arizona, which will serve as the theme to which attorneys will speak about in the classroom.


Law Day provides students in grades K-12 with the opportunity to learn about the Miranda Warning and to explore criminal justice and human rights in our country; 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.


To participate, attorneys and teachers can sign up at The Young Lawyers Section will match you with a local school or attorney. For more information about Law Day or the Miranda decision, visit
