Law Day 2013
President Dwight Eisenhower established May 1st as Law Day in 1958 as "a day of national dedication to the principle of government under law." Across the country, criminal justice agencies and courts will be renewing their understanding of, and appreciation for, the fundamental principle of the rule of law. This year's theme for Law Day is, "No Courts, No justice, No Freedom," and is indicative of the crucial role our judicial system plays in a free society. The Williams Justice and Municipal Courts will celebrate Law Day on May 13th by opening the Court to students from the Williams High School and Middle School to partake in courtroom activities which will impress upon them the importance of law and order in our communities. Real attorneys, bailiffs, and other criminal justice professionals and service providers will be present to provide instruction and real experience with inter-active courtroom proceedings. We want to encourage the public to celebrate with us on this day to remember of all the past sacrifices and struggles involved in creating the fair and just legal system we all appreciate. The event will be open to the public so please plan to stop by the court on May 13th between 8:00am and 4:00pm. We want to thank the Williams Unified School District and all of the criminal justice and service providing professionals who are participating to make this event a success!
