FREEHOLD, NJ - The Superior Court of New Jersey, Monmouth Vicinage and the Monmouth Bar Association will conduct their annual Law Day ceremony on Monday, May 2 at 4 p.m. in the Hall of Records general equity courtroom, Mainand Court streets, Freehold Borough. 

The national theme is “The Legacy of John Adams, from Boston to Guantanamo.” This year marks the 54th anniversary of Law Day, which is designated as a celebration of our nation’s great heritage of liberty, justice and equality under law.

Monmouth Vicinage Assignment Judge Lawrence M. Lawson said, “This year’s law day theme will help reinforce the fundamental principle of the rule of law. It also provides the opportunity to honor our legal institutions and recognize their impact on our democratic society.”

Assignment Judge Lawson will offer opening remarks. Monmouth Bar Association President Craig Laughlin also will speak. Court employee Tarika Jean-Pierre will perform vocal selections.

During the ceremony, the Daniel J. O’Hern Mock Trial Award will be presented to the Marine Academy of Science and Technology for winning the 2011 Monmouth County High School Mock Trial Competition.
