From the the Greensboro Bar Association:

Our local Law Day celebration is tomorrow night, May 1 at 7:00 p.m. at Elon University School of Law. The celebration will include a speaker panel and a short awards ceremony for the children who have submitted projects. This year’s panelists include The Honorable Susan Bray, Lewis Pitts, Matt Comer, Chuck Hodierne, and Malcolm Kenton. The panel will be moderated by Steven Friedland. This will be a wonderful opportunity to hear the perspectives of those with knowledge and experience and to participate in a question and answer session. We encourage you to bring your children since part of the discussion will be on how youth can become involved in the community and make positive change happen. We look forward to seeing you!
