Law Day is a national event every April that celebrates the signing of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It is an occasion for the pubic to learn about the law, the legal profession and the legal institutions that form the cornerstones of Canadian democracy.
Law Day activities across Canada are an excellent opportunity for the legal profession to educate the public about the vital role lawyers and the judiciary serve in guaranteeing an open, independent and unbiased judicial system. Activities include lectures on the law, mock trials, courthouse tours, open citizenship courts, as well as poster, photography and website design contests aimed at elementary and high school students.
