Law Day U.S.A. Activities Scheduled Statewide


Knapschaefer, Johanna, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Preparations for Law Day U.S.A. events are shaping up.

Gov. Henry Bellmon has declared May 1 as Law Day U.S.A. and April 30 through May 6 as Community Law Week.

Schools, churches and civic organizations are being urged to join lawyers in observing Law Day with special programs that reflect Oklahoma's legal heritage, the important role of law in our society and the necessity of ensuring access to justice for every citizen.

Law Day U.S.A. was originated in Oklahoma by the late Hicks Epton of Wewoka, a past president of the Oklahoma Bar Association.

1989 marks the 32nd year it has been observed nationally by the American Bar Association.

Annually, Law Day U.S.A. is celebrated by Americans in appreciation of their liberties and to provide an occasion for rededication to the ideals of equality and justice under laws. It was established by the United States Presidential Proclamation in 1958 and reaffirmed by a Joint Resolution of Congress in 1961. . .

- On April 26, a two-hour "Ask a Lawyer" program, sponsored by the Oklahoma Bar Association, will be conducted on Oklahoma Educational Television Authority channels from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. on April 26.

Oklahoma Bar Association President Anthony "Tony" Massad, Frederick, will participate in the program, which will be hosted by Niles Jackson, Special District Judge of the Seventh Judicial District.

More than 300 attorneys have volunteered to take calls in all Oklahoma counties.

Oklahoma and Tulsa county phone banks will be open all day from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. Telephones in all other counties will be staffed only during the television program from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Panelists for the television call-in program will include:

- Christopher D. Szlichta, Stillwater, who will serve as moderator of the discussion on "Child Support Guidelines and Collection." He plans to speak on setting amounts for child support and collections.

- Doug Dodd, Tulsa, to discuss "Rights of the Elderly," which will include an explanation of the New Guardianship Act, catastrophic health insurance and living wills.

- Raymond L. Vaughn, Edmond, will discuss "Crime Victims."

Other panels will be announced later.

The Law Day committee is also sponsoring an essay and poster contest. . .

- Col. Henry Fowler Jr., staff judge advocate for the 55th Strategic Reconnaissance Wing at Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska, will speak on "access to justice," the law day theme, at a luncheon in the Plaza Ballroom of the Sheraton Century Hotel on April 29 as part of Oklahoma County Bar Association activities. …
