Wayne court to present Law Day events

Michigan Law Day 2016 is Thursday, May 12. Wayne County Circuit Court will co-host the 2016 Michigan Law Day with the Detroit Metropolitan Bar Association from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center (CAYMAC), 2 Woodward Ave. in Detroit.

More than 300 Detroit public high school students will participate in Law Day by visiting the courthouse, learning about legal careers, mock oral arguments and lunch with the judges.

Wayne County Circuit Court Chief Judge Colombo will give opening remarks and Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy will deliver the keynote and take questions from the audience. Wayne County Circuit Court judges will also be in attendance for lunch with the students and a host of attorneys who have committed to graciously volunteering their time for the day.

Law Day is a national celebration held annually in May to celebrate the role of law in our society and to cultivate a deeper understanding of the legal profession. President Dwight Eisenhower established the first Law Day in 1958 to mark the nation's commitment to the rule of law.

In 1961, Congress issued a joint resolution designating May 1 as the official date for celebrating Law Day.
