The American Bar Association (ABA) has announced that the 2013 Law Day theme will be "Realizing the Dream: Equality for All." The event will commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and the impact that the Civil Rights Movement has had on equality under law. Law Day is celebrated each year on May 1 to foster greater appreciation for the law and greater understanding of the American judicial system. For talking points, planning ideas and other resources visit the ABA's Law Day homepage. Get started by downloading the 2013 Planning Guide. This year' guide features ideas and resources for putting on a successful Law Day program with information about planning an event, publicizing an event, organizing activities, and creating lesson plans. The 2013 version also offers a new iPad version and a PDF version that can be printed and distributed.
