FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Justice John Weimer welcomed 122 students from Thibodaux High School to the Louisiana Supreme Court on Monday, May 1, 2017 to take part in the Court’s Law Day 2017 activities.


While at the court, the students had the opportunity to visit the Louisiana Supreme Court Museum, tour the Law Library of Louisiana, where they learned about the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment, and meet with Justice Weimer in the courtroom.


“I thoroughly enjoyed my visit with the students of Thibodaux High School, from which I graduated in 1972,” said Justice Weimer. “I commend the students and their teachers for visiting the Louisiana Supreme Court on Law Day. The students were polite, inquisitive, and interested. It is my hope their visit was a worthwhile education experience.”


Law Day was established in 1958 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to strengthen our heritage of liberty, justice and equality under the law. In 1961, Congress issued a joint resolution designating May 1 as the official date for celebrating Law Day. Every president since then has issued a Law Day proclamation on May 1st to celebrate the nation’s commitment to the rule of law. The 2017 national Law Day theme is The 14th Amendment: Transforming American Democracy, and provides the opportunity to explore the many ways that the Fourteenth Amendment has reshaped American law and society.


Teachers or principals interested in coordinating a Louisiana Supreme Court tour or a Law Day presentation with a local judge, contact the Louisiana Supreme Court Community Relations Department at 504.310.2588.
