About Law Day Live

Every year, our nation celebrates Law Day to mark our commitment to the justice system and the rule of law. In 2010, the Nevada Supreme Court partnered with Nevada school districts, educators, and the legal community to create Law Day Live, an interactive video forum linking Nevada’s four population centers – Clark, Washoe, and Elko Counties and Carson City – for an an Internet broadcast viewed by students throughout the state and worldwide.

The first Law Day Live focused on cyberbullying, sexting, and illegal downloads of music – all activities resulting from a student's access to technology. Students across Nevada watched the two-hour event live on the Supreme Court website, and participated in the conversation by commenting or asking questions through a Twitter link.

Between 2010 and 2014, the Supreme Court produced this interactive event to celebrate Law Day. In two sequential years, 2011 and 2012, Law Day Live was honored with the Outstanding Law Day Activity Award from the American Bar Association (ABA) in recognition of excellence and service to the goals of the national Law Day movement.
