Celebrate Law Day in May.

Celebrate Law Day with the Westmoreland Bar AssociationSponsored by the Pennsylvania Bar Association, Law Day sends judges and lawyers back to school for classroom visits in an effort to teach students about the law. Each year, more than 4,000 kindergarten, elementary, middle, junior high, and high school students throughout Westmoreland County are treated to presentations by the judges, attorneys, and magisterial district judges who volunteer.

This year’s theme is “Magna Carta: Symbol of Freedom Under Law.”
