“This is a great event to show students and community members how the Constitution is relevant to us today,” said APALA-NJ co-chair, Chintan Desai.

“The topics being discussed are items we hear about every day and can help students understand what they mean and how it can affect their generation. We are so happy to partner with Rowan College at Burlington County and look forward to an engaging conversation,” said APALA-NJ co-chair, Diane Magram.

RCBC can assist students interested in a career in Law & Justice with its 3+1 program that offers majors in Liberal Studies (concentration in Law & Justice) or Criminal Justice (Law & Justice).

Law Day is an annual commemoration first held in 1957 when American Bar Association President Charles Rhynes envisioned a special national day to mark our nation’s commitment to the rule of law. The following year, President Dwight D. Eisenhower issued the first Law Day Proclamation. Law Day was made official in 1961 when Congress issued a joint resolution designating May 1 as the official date for celebrating Law Day.
