In celebration of Law Day 2016, the Hawai’i State Judiciary is hosting various activities throughout the state during the first week of May.

Law Day 2016 is the celebration of the role of law, the legal process, and the courts in our democratic society.

“Miranda: More than World” is the theme of Law Day 2016. The theme celebrates the 50th anniversary of one of America’s best-known U.S. Supreme Court cases: Miranda v. Arizona.

Law Day will explore the procedural protections afforded 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.

On the Big Island, students have been arranged to tour the Third Circuit court. Students will observe court proceedings and meet with judges.

Elsewhere in the state, educational displays will be on display on the historic significance of the Miranda case, along with other information on the Miranda case. Students visited courts and observed meetings leading up to the week in the Second Circuit, and in the Fifth Circuit, presentations on landlord/tenant relationships will take place.
