Rights First Law Attorney Help Celebrate Law Day May 1, 2014

Law Day is a U.S. national holiday declared by former President Dwight D. Eisenhower at the suggestion of his legal counsel, Charles Rhyne. It was codified by Public Law 87-20 on April 7, 1961, and falls on May 1. The purpose of Law Day is to appreciate the ideals of equality and justice under the law.

The theme for Law Day 2014 was American Democracy and the Rule of Law. RFL Founder and Principal Attorney, Stephanie Fakih, volunteered with other members of the Oakland County Bar Association (OCBA) in visiting two Pontiac schools to educate 8th graders about the importance of the Constitution. The volunteers were joined by two guest speakers – Judge Leo Bowman of the 6th Circuit Court and Reginald Turner, former president of the Michigan State Bar. Stephanie and the other OCBA lawyer and judge volunteers demonstrated a mock trial that highlighted the importance of the 4th Amendment and its prohibition against unreasonable search and seizure.

Each student received a pocket-sized Constitution from the OCBA volunteers in an effort to promote respect for a document that was so well planned and formulated hundreds of years ago. Documents like the Constitution are the foundation of American democracy and must be understood to the largest extent possible, especially by our young citizens, for the continued progress of democracy.
