37th Annual Law Day Conference
The 14th Amendment: Transforming American Democracy
Portland State University
May 2, 2017
Since 1981, more than 20,000 Oregon and SW Washington high school students have attended the Law Day Conference featuring exciting workshops that explore our legal system. The Conference was first started to celebrate National Law Day, May 1, by offering students a variety of provocative, informative, and timely workshops about legal issues and led by legal experts. The success of the conference has led to full-capacity workshops each year as well as fostered dialogues and discussion on how the law affects us all.
Classroom Law Project sponsors this conference in order to provide students with information to help make well-reasoned decisions. Workshops are interesting, topical, and so current that many are being argued in the courts today. When students leave the conference at the end of Law Day, they will be more informed citizens, know more about where to go for help, and, we hope, develop new interest and appreciation for being an active citizen.
