Assignment Judge Deborah Silverman Katz recently announced that the Camden Vicinage will hold its annual Law Day celebration on Friday, May 10 at 9:30 a.m. in the jury assembly room at the Hall of Justice, 101 S. 5th St. Camden.
The national theme for this year’s Law Day is “Free Speech, Free Press, Free Society.”
Students from the Camden County Technical School (Pennsauken and Sicklerville locations) and Lawnside Public School will observe a panel discussion and participate in a question-and-answer session with the panel, followed by a tour of the courthouse.
Trial Court Administrator Colleen Lore will provide opening remarks and Superior Court Judge Morris G. Smith will moderate the panel and provide closing remarks.
The program, sponsored by the vicinage in partnership with the Association of Black Women Lawyers of New Jersey and the Camden County Bar Association, is made possible with funding from the New Jersey State Bar Association and the IOLTA Fund of the Bar of New Jersey.
Law Day is a national event established by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1958 as “a day of national dedication to the principles of government under law.”
