Law Day Gives Students Lessons in Liberty, Justice and Equality


Byline: Tony Gordon

It will be time to "stop and smell the law books" before too much longer, and schools should begin making their plans for Law Day 2002.

A number of events aimed at student participation in the annual observance of our heritage of liberty, justice and equality have been organized by court officials and are scheduled for May 2.

"The purpose of Law Day is to stop and smell the law books," Chief Circuit Judge Margaret Mullen said. "It sounds funny, but our government of laws is something we should cherish and celebrate."

The theme for this year's event is "Why do we have laws?" and there are activities for every grade level.

College and high school students from Lake County are invited to participate in a photo contest related to the theme of Law Day.

On May 2, high school students are invited to tour the courthouse, 18 N. County St., Waukegan, and participate in a number of activities. They can also enter an oratorical contest addressing the theme.

Seventh- and eighth-grade students can enter an essay competition. Those in grades four through six can compete in a poster contest.

Children from kindergarten through third grade are invited to participate in a coloring contest, and winners in all the competitions will be honored at a reception in the courthouse on Law Day.

For information on participating in any of the activities, call Diane Flory at (847) 377-3812.

Parent university: Parents of students who will be entering Warren Township High School in Gurnee in the fall are invited to a seminar which will seek to introduce them to their children's brave new world.

Parent University will be from 8:30 a.m. until noon Saturday at the school's Almond Road campus, 34090 Almond Road, and no fee or advance registration is required.

Gurnee Police Detective Jack Metcalf, school liaison officer, said agents of the Lake County Metropolitan Enforcement Group will provide information on club drugs, their use and the signs parents can look for that indicate their children might be using drugs.
