Law Day Luncheon
Each year, the Bar Association hosts a luncheon to celebrate Law Day, which is observed nationally on May 1. The Bar Association’s annual luncheon presents an opportunity to recognize citizens within our legal community who have made significant contributions to our system of justice. Students are also recognized each year for participating in the annual Mock Trial Tournament. All BAEC members are invited to join us for this special event!
LAW DAY TICKETS SOLD OUT
Due to COVID-19 capacity restrictions, we sold out of Law Day tickets. We apologize for the inconvenience. Because we sold out, we are now making the event available to watch via live stream! There is no cost to watch the live stream. A special thank you to RPM Entertainment for making the live stream possible.
