Law Day Essay Contest
Sixty years ago, in 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower established Law Day as a way to challenge Americans to understand how the rule of law impacts their lives and to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to participate in a democracy. The State Bar of Texas and the Texas young lawyers Association, as well as the Katy Bar Association, celebrate the importance of the rule of law and its impact on our nation and local communities by hosting a statewide editorial contest. There will be awards for First, Second and Third place to be used for college and the contest is open to all students. The deadline for ALL entries is March 20, 2018, and should reflect the student's interpretation of the 2018 Law Day theme by responding to the following prompt:
