We hope you have had a chance to take a look at the new website. We think it is much more functional and better suited to your needs. Please get back to us with any comments so we can ensure the website is working the way it should. We plan to go live with the new site on April 8.
Another event to look forward to is Law Day on Wednesday, May 1. The theme this year is “Realizing the Dream, Equality for All.” As stated by the American Bar Association:
The promise of equality under the law is what has made America a beacon to other nations. It is a pledge clearly set forth in the Declaration of Independence and in the opening words of the Preamble of the Constitution, “We the People.” It is, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, the proposition to which our nation is dedicated.
The celebration marks the 150th anniversary of the emancipation proclamation. The Young Lawyers Division is holding their annual awards luncheon at noon on May 1 at Little America; cost is $30 per person; RSVP Breanne, firstname.lastname@example.org. They are also placing lawyers in classroom throughout the state to teach about voting rights; if you can help with an in-school presentation for American Voter, please e-mail Mike at email@example.com. YLD is kicking off its week-long Law Day celebration with Serving Our Seniors on April 27 at the Utah Law and Justice Center, helping seniors completing a Health Care Directive and Power of Attorney. Check here for all the activities leading up to and on Law Day.
