Calling All Advocates for Equal Justice Under the Law

Celebrate Law Day with the Westmoreland Bar Association

As we approach the 150th anniversary of the 14th Amendment, what a great opportunity for attorneys to visit classrooms to educate students about the rights of Americans and the protection provided to them through our democracy.

The second of the three “Civil War Amendments,” the 14th Amendment may be the most important amendment added to the Constitution at any time since the Bill of Rights was ratified in 1791. Congress passed the amendment specifically to prevent white southerners from using the powers of their state governments to effectively re-enslave recently liberated blacks by passing racially discriminatory laws.

Sponsored 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.

If you are a judge, attorney, or magisterial district judge and want to volunteer to visit a classroom for Law Day 2017, fill out this form.

If you are a teacher in Westmoreland County and would like to request a presentation for your class, fill out this form.
