Mayor Matthew J. Driscoll has agreed to speak at the annual Onondaga County
Bar Foundation Law Day Luncheon! This event has always provided a great
opportunity to reflect on how far the legal system has evolved and to project
on where it may be headed in the future. This year especially, with the tragic events of
September, will be cause for deeper reflection and action. Come join your
peers at the Luncheon, which will take place on national Law Day, May 1, 2002,
in the Imperial Ballroom of the Hotel Syracuse. The Luncheon will begin at
11:30 a.m. and is $17.00 per person.
National Law Day was established by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1958 in
recognition of the United States Democracy. Since that date, Bar
Associations and legal groups across the country have been commemorating the
date with special activities and events to honor the legal system. The
theme for this year's Law Day is, "Celebrate Your Freedom: Assuring
Equal Justice for All." The Law Day events usually consist of members
of the legal community, local high school students, teachers, and parents.
Also taking place on May 1st is a morning ceremony in Room 300 of the
Onondaga County Courthouse. Judge Brian DeJoseph will preside. Many
local legislators, judges and justices, attorneys, and community members are
expected to attend. The Law Day festivities are a wonderful way to
commemorate our unique legal system.
Both events are open to the public. We truly hope you can attend!
