In 1958 President Dwight Eisenhower established Law Day as “a day of national dedication to the principle of government under law.” Commemorated annually since that date, Law Day programs are conducted throughout the country by bar associations, courts, schools, and civic groups.
In celebration of the 55th annual Law Day, the Beverly Hills Bar Association Barristers hosted a Law Day Event, with very special guest speaker, Honorable Lee Smalley Edmon. In celebration of Law Day, the Barristers collaborated with LexisNexis in offering free MCLE for attendance at Judge Edmon's discussion on the California State Budget Crisis.
During the Law Day presentation, Judge Edmon offered insight into the the state budget situation, the two-part plan proposed by the Administrative Office, the judicial Budget Working Group’s approach, and the importance of adequate response to the budget crisis to protect access to justice in California.
