Lawyer for a Day

On May 5, 2006 by Schnader

On May 5, 2006, Jim Eisenhower participated in the “Lawyer for a Day” event sponsored by the Young Lawyers Division of the Philadelphia Bar Association. The event capped off a weeklong celebration of Law Day, which was established as an annual event on May 1, 1958 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to draw attention to both the principles and practice of law and justice. After touring courtrooms, observing trials, and meeting judges and attorneys, the students, teachers and their Young Lawyer Division host attorneys returned to the Philadelphia Bar Association offices for lunch and an informational program designed to encourage and motivate students to consider pursuing a career in law.
