2019 Law Day CLE, Reception & Access to Justice Campaign Kick-Off

Event Details

May 1st is Law Day!

Join us at Beside Bardenay on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 from 4:30-8:00 p.m. (MT) for the 2019 Law Day Reception. Idaho Supreme Court Justice Robyn Brody will be our emcee. The theme this year, “Free Speech, Free Press, Free Society,” focuses on these cornerstones of representative government and calls on us to understand and protect these rights to ensure, as the U.S. Constitution proposes, “the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity.”

Join us for a FREE CLE as experienced 1st Amendment attorney Deborah Kristensen Grasham and journalist Besty Russell of the Idaho Press Tribune discuss free speech and free press, and the historical and current debates surrounding them.
