LAW DAY LIVE – THURSDAY
Media is invited to attend Law Day Live 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 26, 2012
Law Day Live is an interactive Internet video forum linking high schools in three Nevada communities. The media is welcome to attend and video or take photographs at Canyon Springs High School in Las Vegas, Damonte Ranch High School in Reno, and Lowry High School in Winnemucca.
The forum – which is being streamed live on the Supreme Court website – will focus on issues of privacy rights and the difficulties faced by the courts to keep their doors open and deal with today’s ever-growing caseloads.
The 2012 Law Day theme established by the American Bar Association is:
NO COURTS, NO JUSTICE, NO FREEDOM.
Law Day Live will begin by looking at a privacy rights case that began as a confrontation between a Winnemucca rancher and a police officer investigating a domestic violence call. The case made it all the way to the United States Supreme Court.
WHAT: Law Day Live, an interactive forum that will engage judges, lawyers, educators, and students in debate around the American Bar Association’s Law Day theme of NO COURTS, NO JUSTICE, NO FREEDOM. Watch Law Day Live here on the Supreme Court website. The portal will be active 5 minutes before the webcast begins.
WHEN: Thursday, April 26, 2012, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m.
WHERE: Law Day Live will link panels at Damonte Ranch High School in Reno, Canyon Springs High School in Las Vegas, and Lowry High School in Winnemucca, but anyone with a computer can attend and participate.
WHO: Chief Justice Nancy Saitta in Las Vegas, Justice James W. Hardesty in Reno, Judge Michael Montero in Winnemucca.
