2003 Press Releases

(504) 599-0319

  APRIL 23, 2003


Justice John L. Weimer announced today, in recognition of Law Day, May 1 st , the Louisiana Supreme Court has issued a resolution urging all Louisiana state judges to dedicate the month of May 2003 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. A copy of the resolution is available on the Court's web site at www.lasc.org .

Law Day was established in 1957 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to strengthen our heritage of liberty, justice and equality under the law. Three years later Congress designated May 1 st as the official date for celebrating Law Day in the United States.

The resolution, states in part that "all judges have a unique ability to educate young people about our legal system." On this 46 th anniversary of Law Day, it further stresses the importance of Louisiana judges engaging in "law-related education in the form of opening their courtrooms to students or going into classrooms to teach" as a means to highlight the occasion and to deepen respect and understanding of the law.

A similar resolution adopted by the Louisiana District Court Judges Association encouraged every district court judge to volunteer one hour during the month of May to law-related education.

Any teacher or principal interested in coordinating a Law Day presentation with a judge contact the Louisiana Supreme Court Community Relations Department at (504) 599-0319.
