Massachusetts legal community celebrates Law Day

Issue July 2014

Each May, in celebration of Law Day, the Massachusetts Bar Association sends attorneys and judges to various high school classes to engage students on a specific legal topic. This year's Law Day topic spoke to a basic right in our society that affects students and schools directly: freedom of speech.

As part of the MBA's Law Day Every Day 2014 program, volunteer attorneys and judges visited local schools to engage students in an open conversation about free speech. Volunteers brought the Constitution to life to help students understand how it plays a vital role in their daily lives and to help teachers educate students about their rights and responsibilities as citizens.
