Law Week 2016

April 29, 2016 - May 6, 2016

In 2016 the nation marks the 50th anniversary of perhaps the nation’s best known U.S. Supreme Court case, Miranda v. Arizona. This year’s Law Day theme — Miranda: More than Words — will explore the procedural protections    afforded to all of us by the U.S. Constitution, how these rights are safeguarded by the courts, and why the preservation of these principles is essential to our liberty.


Law Week Chairman Brian Flanagan and his committee are working on several events for this year’s Law Week activities. If you are willing to serve on the    committee, and or help out with the events, please email Brian Flanagan at bflanagan@bwor.com.
