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.
