Town Hall Discussion to Increase Public Understanding of Courts
First meeting: Thursday, Feb. 27 - Canadian County Courthouse, El Reno
5 p.m. - Public invited
Try this experiment: Ask your friends or neighbors
to name all three Kardashian sisters. Now ask them
to name three Supreme Court justices. If they are
like many Americans, they’ll easily rattle off “Kim,
Khloe and Kourtney,” but be utterly baffled about those men and women who protect their
constitutional rights and our American way of life by making fair and impartial decisions in
any number of court cases.
That’s why the OBA is launching a major public education initiative aimed at directly engaging Oklahomans to promote understanding of the third branch of government. Also to be addressed is the topic of how we choose judges in Oklahoma, and how judicial selection affects
every citizen of our state. The first of several OBA-
and county bar-sponsored town hall meetings will
take place Thursday, Feb. 27 at the Canadian
County Courthouse in El Reno.
The event begins
at 3 p.m. with up to two hours of CLE focused on
practice management as well as judicial selection
issues. At 5 p.m. lawyers are invited to stay as the
informal public discussion and reception begin.
The event will be attended by bar and civic leaders
as well as members of the judiciary.
