Senator Patrick Leahy, Governor Peter Shumlin, Chief Justice Paul Reiber, and members of the Vermont legislature will join VBA President Jim Carroll on Friday, May 4, at 2:00 PM, on the steps of the Vermont Supreme Court in Montpelier, to celebrate the rule of law and to highlight the importance of fair, impartial, and independent courts in our constitutional democracy.
The program is held to coincide with the week of Law Day, May 1. Law Day provides an opportunity to reflect on the importance of courts that are accountable to our Constitution and to our laws, as well as a time to renew every person’s commitment to the central theme of our constitutional democracy: equal justice under law.
Vermont has a rich history of independence and self-reliance. We are a proud participatory democracy. Vermont’s people reflect the best of a representative democracy governed by the rule of law.
