first_img May 1, 2001 Amy Brown Assistant Editor Regular News Local bar associations gear up for Law Week Assistant Editor “Law Day provides an opportunity for all Florida lawyers and citizens to celebrate our freedom and the laws that protect it; and whereas, Florida joins the legal profession and all its citizens in recognizing the annual nationwide observance of Law Day with “Celebrate Your Freedom: Protecting the Best Interests of Our Children” as a national theme; Now, therefore, I, Jeb Bush, governor of the state of Florida, do hereby extend greetings and best wishes to all observing Law Week.. . . “ Gov. Jeb Bush from his Law Week Proclamation Law Week 2001 is underway, and citizens across the state are celebrating the event by learning about the role of law in their lives. Lawyers, judges, and law enforcement officers in Florida are working with teachers and community leaders to teach children and citizens about constitutional freedoms and the laws that protect them. This year’s theme, “Celebrate Your Freedom: Protecting the Best Interests of Our Children,” focuses on outreach to children.“Protection of the interests of our children is not only essential to the protection of freedom, but it is also our legacy,” said Bob Pritt, statewide Law Week chair. “We cannot expect to remain a free society unless we fiercely protect the best interest of our children.”In 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower established Law Day U.S.A. to strengthen our heritage of liberty, justice, and equality under the law, and three years later, May 1 was designated by a joint resolution of Congress as the official date for celebration.May 1 remains the official date, however, the celebration in most states has expanded to cover an entire week or more, and Law Day has become the biggest single public relations project conducted by the legal profession.In 1998, with the help of the Florida Legislature, The Florida Bar saw the passage of legislation that officially designates Law Day and Law Week each year in the state. Like most states, Florida has answered the ABA’s call-to-action and follows the nationwide theme.In her message to this year’s Law Week participants, American Bar Association President Martha Barnett said, “One of the noblest pursuits of the legal profession is helping improve children’s lives through legislative and judicial reform, as well as by legal work on cases affecting children. Few professional activities are as rewarding as helping the most vulnerable children in our society: abused, neglected, and abandoned children; youth who find themselves in the juvenile justice system; child victims of crime; and children affected by their parents’ divorce or separation.”The ABA has taken a leadership role in organizing and promoting Law Week celebrations across the country and offers planning guides and myriad materials to aid state and local bar associations in their efforts.Utilizing the ABA’s suggestions, voluntary and local bar associations across the state are undertaking major public outreach projects ranging from providing speakers for schools to golf tournaments to benefit local charities.Some notable efforts include:• The Eighth Judicial Circuit Bar Association’s Courthouse Law Week Committee is hosting several educational events for the community, including a visit by the judiciary to local high schools, tours of the Alachua County Courthouse, and Law Day on the Downtown Plaza, featuring information booths and a police K-9 unit demonstration.• The Hernando County Bar Association has organized a Law Week banquet, a free “Ask a Lawyer” session with one-on-one legal consultations, the 4th Annual Law Week Golf Tournament, a probate seminar, a televised roundtable discussion, a radio talk show on WWJB, guest editorials in local papers, and several awards to be presented during the week.• The Highlands County Bar Association is providing an open house in the law library, followed by a ceremony in the Judge Clifton Kelly courtroom. The ceremony will feature speeches by Justice Parker Lee McDonald, Highlands County Bar President William Nielander, and Circuit Chief Judge Charles B. Curry. The winners of several student contests will be recognized, as will the circuit’s sheriff and teen court and guardian ad litem programs.• The Hillsborough County Bar Association has planned two major events, in addition to their regular courthouse tours for all fifth graders in the county. In two televised Judicial Town Hall Meetings, both kids and adults will be educated about the inner-workings of the court system. First, Judge Ralph Stoddard, Public Defender Julie Holt, and State Attorney Mark Ober will present a skit of a domestic violence detention hearing and answer questions from students. The second meeting will be lead by local family law judges and family law practitioners and focus on the legal standard, “in the best interest of the child.” The community will also have the opportunity to ask questions of the child custody experts.• In Duval County, Circuit Judges Karen Cole and Gregg McCaullie will visit a local high school and discuss both the family court and criminal dockets with students.• The Caribbean Bar Association has scheduled a Miami-Dade County Juvenile Court Field Trip for students from a local high school legal magnet program; a juvenile dependency panel discussion titled “Juvenile Dependency and You” and featuring Circuit Judge John T. Luzzo, assistant attorney generals, and representatives from the Florida Department of Children and Families; and agreements with local media to publish information and essays about Law Day.• The Clearwater Bar Association will again present their Annual Law Day Luncheon, which will feature John J. Loftus, president of the Holocaust Museum, as the main speaker. The bar will also commemorate Law Day 2001 with the 7th Annual Law Day Ride, at which motorcycle riders provide a donation to the Clearwater Bar Foundation’s pro bono program.• The Tallahassee Bar Association has scheduled a Fairy Tale Mock Trial for local elementary schools; speakers for high schools; a Habitat for Humanity project; and “Community Law Day” at the local senior center, featuring speakers and question-and-answer sessions.• The Volusia County Bar Association will hold the 6th Annual Barristers’ Scramble golf tournament which will benefit the bar’s Scholarship Fund Development, Volusia County “Friends of Teen Court,” and a number of other bar programs. The bar will kick off Law Week with a luncheon with featured speaker Circuit Judge Julianne Piggotte, who serves in the juvenile dependency division.• The St. Petersburg Bar Association has garnered space in the City of St. Petersburg’s “City Hall in the Mall” booth, at which volunteers will provide general legal information and promote the bar’s Community Law Program. The bar also plans to hold a poster contest, career shadowing, criminal mock trial, jail tours, and provide speakers for local high schools.To get involved in the activities in your area, contact your local bar association or access the Bar’s website at www.FLABAR.org for information about the Law Week chair in your community.
