  • “Ask a Lawyer” booth 
See the event brochure for exact details and times.

I went a couple years ago, and it was really fun. The musical trial is a whoot, as some lawyers and judges can sing and some...can't but count on the costume to make up for this! It's well worth a visit. The tour is also pretty neat. Besides learning about the court house, you get to see the wired up super courtroom, the holding cells and can even sit in the transport vehicles. It's a great learning event for all ages.

I highly recommend visiting the court house this Saturday for Law Day!

 I'll be working in the library, so when you're up there on your tour, make sure you say hi!

Law Day also takes place in Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Red Deer, Fort McMurray, Drumheller and Calgary. For more information, check out the official Law Day in Alberta website.
