Law Day was established in 1958 by President Eisenhower and is celebrated annually to recognize America’s commitment to the rule of law. The Detroit Bar Association, the Barristers’ Section, and the Third Judicial Circuit Court host a program for Detroit high school students from public, private and charter schools. The program prepares a mock trial problem, offers essay and scholarship opportunities, and invites the participating students to the Coleman A. Young municipal center for the day to interact with judges and attorneys to learn more about careers in the law.
