Law Day Events Help Students Understand Dream of Equality for All

Throughout May, federal courts brought students together under the umbrella of this year's Law Day theme, "Realizing the Dream: Equality for All." In urban courtrooms in Pennsylvania, a suburban school auditorium in Minnesota, and under a blue sky in California's Yosemite Valley students from elementary, middle, and high schools participated in experiences designed to heighten their awareness of the justice system. A variety of interactive programs facilitated by federal and state judges, Federal Public Defender offices, U.S. Attorney's offices, bar associations, and community leaders across the nation made real and relevant the right to counsel; the struggle for racial equality; and the rule of law.  The programs gave students a memorable lesson in how these abstract concepts have a practical presence in their everyday lives. In the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, federal courts in Philadelphia, Allentown and Reading opened their courtrooms to 250 students from 11 area schools.
