CAMPTON HILLS – The Kane County Bar Association will celebrate Law Day on May 1 by teaching fifth graders at Wasco Elementary School in Campton Hills about the law.
To honor Law Day, three attorneys will celebrate the rule of law and its contributions to the freedoms that Americans enjoy by teaching local students what attorneys do and the importance of our laws.
Attorneys Alice Sackett, the current president of the bar, Colleen Thomas, an appellate lawyer, and Lindsay Hatzis, incoming president for 2019-20, will join the fifth-grade classes for one class period.
The Kane County Bar Association hopes to make this Law Day celebration an annual tradition that builds on its 160-year history in Kane County.
Some of the bar association’s objectives are to facilitate and promote the administration of justice and to encourage continuing legal education.
The Kane County Bar Association is the oldest bar association in Illinois. It was established to maintain the honor and dignity of the profession of law, to facilitate and promote the administration of justice, to encourage continuing legal education, to assist in the delivery of legal services to the public and to cultivate social and professional interrelationships among its members.
