2002 Press Releases

  APRIL 26, 2002

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

One hundred third grade students from Bissonet Elementary School participated in a program sponsored by the Louisiana Supreme Court today designed to teach the youngsters about the role of the Supreme Court and give them a "behind the scenes" view of the Court's day-to-day operations.

"In recognition of Law Day, May 1 st , the Louisiana Supreme Court issued a resolution urging all Louisiana state judges to dedicate the month of May 2002 to reaching out to schools to provide students with an opportunity to learn about the law, the role of a judge, and the court system from members of the judiciary. Today we are kicking-off the 45 th anniversary of Law Day by opening the courthouse doors of the Louisiana Supreme Court," said Chief Justice Pascal F. Calogero, Jr.

Chief Justice Calogero advised the group on how to prepare themselves for a career as a judge and he discussed the important daily decisions judges make which ultimately effect the lives of all Louisiana citizens. Thereafter, the students toured the Louisiana State Law Library which is housed in the Supreme Court and where they were read "Marshall the Courthouse Mouse;" visited the Clerk of Court's Office to see and hear about the volume and kinds of cases which come to the Supreme Court; sat on the bench as "Supreme Court justices" and tackled decision-making problems concerning the No Vehicles in the Park law in the fictional town of Beautifica; and finally, they were informed about the serious nature of courthouse protection and safety by the Chief of Court Security for the Louisiana Supreme Court..
