Celebrating 30 Years of Law Day in the Schools With More Than 30 Sponsors


This year, the BBA is celebrating its 30th anniversary of Law Day in the Schools! For a bit of background: In 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower established Law Day as time to honor our government’s legal process and individual rights. Law Day has been celebrated on May 1st of each year since 1961, and the BBA is thrilled to turn Law Day into a month-long celebration at 16 Beacon Street with Law Day in the Schools and our Law Day Dinner.

Consistently one of the most popular public service programs among our members, the Law Day in the Schools program gives elementary, middle, and high school students in the Boston Public Schools a firsthand look at the legal profession. BBA volunteers introduce students to the legal profession, teach about legal rights and laws, and engage with our community. This year more than 80 volunteers will visit over 50 classrooms to teach more than 1,400 students about the 1966 U.S. Supreme Court case Miranda v. Arizona and expand upon the idea of “Miranda: More than Just Words.”

Who has signed up to volunteer so far?

  • 30 BBA Sponsors
