RE: Law Day 2007 - “Liberty Under Law: Empowering Youth, Assuring Democracy”

In recognition of Law Day 2007, the United States District Court, Central District of California is again offering programs to high school students within the Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, and Riverside County School Districts. The programs will be held at the U.S. Courthouse, 312 N. Spring Street, Los Angeles. Although Law Day is nationally recognized on May 1st, the Court will be providing sessions Tuesday through Friday, May 1 - May 4, 2007. The highlight of the event is a mock trial incorporating this year’s theme and specifically, the legality of downloading music. The mock trial will be followed by speakers from related federal agencies.

By this letter, I extend an invitation to you and your high school students to attend any of the sessions offered. If you and your students are interested, please complete the enclosed registration form available on the U.S. District Court website at www.cacd.uscourts.gov, which may be copied and distributed to other interested teachers, and return it no later than March 16, 2007.

The court has obtained limited funding to provide for transportation to and from the courthouse and for substitute teachers. If you want to apply for transportation and/or substitute teacher funding, please so indicate on the registration form.

It is anticipated that courtroom space will be utilized to capacity; therefore, it will be necessary for us to confirm your attendance the day before your scheduled visit. Each participating teacher will be mailed the mock trial script in early April so that the students can thoroughly review the script before the visit. No reservation from a school will be accepted without the name, home address, and work and home telephone number of each teacher attending the program.

If you have any questions, please contact Lydia A. Yurtchuk at 213-894-8249 or by fax at 213-894-2059.

We look forward to your visit.

SHERRI R. CARTER
DISTRICT COURT EXECUTIVE
