To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to commend and thank members of the Walton County Bar Association for their successful event observing Law Day 2013.
These attorneys organized a visit by more than 120 local high school and middle school students to the Walton County Courthouse to get a first-hand look at our court system and participate in a question-and-answer session with Alcovy Judicial Circuit Superior Court Judge Samuel Osburn. “Realizing the Dream: Equality for All” is the theme for this year’s Law Day, an annual celebration of America’s commitment to the rule of law.
All Georgia lawyers and judges can be inspired our colleagues’ dedication to raising these students’ awareness of the legal system. Bar members’ participation in efforts like this serve to promote the cause of justice, uphold the rule of law and protect the rights of all citizens.
