About Oklahoma Law Day
Law Day is meant to reflect on the role of law in the foundation of the country and to recognize its importance for society. The Oklahoma Bar Association has been celebrating Law Day more than 60 years with activities and events taking place over several weeks and in dozens of counties. The celebration was conceived in 1951 by the late Hicks Epton, a Wewoka attorney and 1953 Oklahoma Bar Association president.
In addition to an annual contest for Oklahoma students and TV show, Oklahoma lawyers from across the state will be giving free legal advice. Oklahoma residents may email their legal questions to email@example.com now through May 4. Questions will be answered starting April 30.
This is the 44th year Oklahoma Bar Association members have offered this community service to celebrate Law Day. Last year, more than 200 lawyers participated and around 1,700 people were helped, leading to about $67,000 in legal services being donated to Oklahomans.
