Law Week 2018 activities begin in February when over 400 special needs students and their teachers are invited to the historic 1910 Courthouse for presentations by local and state judges, as well as assistance with ideas for creating posters and photos for the HBA’s Law Day contests.
Also in February, the HBA will join the Asian American Bar Association, the Houston Lawyers Association, the Hispanic Bar Association, and the Mexican-American Bar Association to sponsor Law Day Poster Workshops for children in the Chinese Community, Third Ward, and East End.
The HBA’s annual Law Week Poster, Essay, and Photography contests run through March 2, with all area schools invited to participate. Cash prizes for students and their teachers are generously underwritten by: Icon Wealth Partners, LLC, Stratos Legal, and 3b Studio.
