Today is Law Day in Ontario. 

Now in its 26th year, Law Day is a national event created by the legal profession to mark the April 1982 signing of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and to help inform the public about how the legal system works.

Celebrations and special events are taking place this week across Ontario and from coast to coast, especially in schools.   Visit the Ontario Bar Association’s Law Day page for more info and a listing of activities, and check out Connie Crosby’s post on Slaw for links to other resources and events taking place across Canada.

Join the celebrations and find out more about the legal system.  While you’re at it, give your lawyer a big hug today.
