SCDSB Students Celebrate Law Day

April 23, 2003 - Secondary students with the four Sudbury and District School Boards received copies of the Criminal Code book from Justice Ian Gordon and Justice Randall Lalande in honour of Law Day and Law Week 2003, recently. Law Day is celebrated annually to commemorate the enactment of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and to provide an enhanced understanding of law and the justice system in Ontario.

The Ontario Justice Education Network in conjunction with the Ontario Bar Association also offers teachers the opportunity of a speaker (Lawyer/Judge) or a courtroom visit during Law Week. This year to mark Law Day, the lawyers of Sudbury, the Judiciary and the Office of the Crown Attorney have collected Criminal Codes to donate to the Sudbury Secondary Schools. The valuable books will used by the students in the Public, Catholic, and French and English School Boards to study various aspects of Canadian law including the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Young Offenders Act. The school boards thank the legal community for this donation.

Participating in the Law Day ceremony were, front row (L-R); assistant Crown attorney Susan Stothart, College Notre Dame's Janelle Giroux; Lockerby Composite's Aliya Pabani; Macdonald-Cartier's Liane Briere; St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School, Laura Nurmi; and Charles Conroy, of the law association; top row (L-R); courthouse operations manager Kevin Lyle; Justice Ian Gordon; Justice Randall Lalande; and courthouse operations supervisor Louise Tarini.
