Law Day Celebrated This Week

Law Day 2005 marks the 20th anniversary of the equality rights provision ("section 15") of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and law associations across the country are holding events to mark the occasion.

The Law Society of Upper Canada is organizing a Great Debate "Do we really need the Charter?" on Wednesday, April 13.

The Ontario Bar Association this year has put the emphasis on school-oriented activities such as mock trials for elementary and secondary school kids.

It is possible to find a description of the Law Day activities in each province and territory by going to the Canadian Bar Association list of regional branches. Each branch website has an events section that lists activities.
