The State Bar of Texas and the Texas Young Lawyers Association celebrated Law Day on May 1, 2012, presenting awards to student winners of the statewide Law Day contest in three categories: editorial, photography, and poster. State Bar President Bob Black and TYLA President Natalie Cobb Koehler were on hand to present the awards and talk with the students about the importance of our justice system. Law Day was established in 1958 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to challenge students to understand how the rule of law affects their lives and to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to participate in our democracy. This year’s national Law Day theme was No Courts, No Justice, No Freedom. The winner of the editorial contest was Andrew Nemec, a senior at St. Thomas High School in Houston. His winning essay, which was submitted by the Houston Bar Association, is presented here along with several of the winning posters and photographs.
