Law Day Celebration 2021 is scheduled for Tuesday, May 4, 2021. This annual celebration will recognize local attorneys and judges within the Second Judicial Circuit, for their outstanding contributions through an online presentation! This year’s event will present some of the most prestigious pro bono awards to those in the legal community, with an opportunity for supporters to view online. This will be live-streamed on our website and social media channels on May 4, 2021.
Our keynote speaker, Mark Ellis, Executive Director at the Internation Bar Association, will provide remarks about the national American Bar Association’s Law Day theme “Advancing the Rule of Law Now”.
