About Law Day
This will be the 31st year the Canadian Bar Association, in cooperation and with funding from the Alberta Law Foundation and the Law Society of Alberta, will organize activities throughout the province to celebrate Law Week. Law Day is a celebration and commemoration of our nation's adoption of the Charter. The ongoing goal of Law Day is to increase public awareness and knowledge and to foster a better understanding of our laws and our legal system.
Are you a high school teacher looking for resources related to the Charter of Rights? Check out the Charter Project. The Charter Project is an entirely student run organization at the University of Windsor and was implemented to increase awareness, and engage Canadians in a discussion about the rights afforded to them by this historic legislation. The Education Branch of the Charter Prokect, has carefully structured in-class workshops designed to stimulate discussion and engage students towards a greater appreciation for a document that is emblematic of the Canadian idenity. High school teachers across Canada are encouraged to visit www.charterproject.ca/teach to download the workshops and run them in their classrooms.
