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 public 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 service in guaranteeing an open, independent and unbiased judicial system.
Activities include mock trials, courthouse tours, open citizenship courts, as well as public speaking and mock trial contests aimed at junior high and high school students.
Our Very Important Paws (VIP) Coordinator, Sarah Doolittle, and our facility dog, Fletcher, will have a booth at this event to educate the public about how child-friendly court works as well as Fletcher’s role when a child is testifying.
