The Eighth Judicial Circuit Bar Association (EJCBA) will host its annual event to commemorate Law Day on May 1st, 2022, including a moderated panel discussion of legal experts discussing this year's theme: Toward a More Perfect Union: The Constitution in Times of Change. 

The event is free and open to the public, and will take place at Millhopper Branch Library, 3145 NW 43rd Street, Gainesville, Florida, on Sunday, May 1st from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.

The event will begin with a reading of a Law Day Proclamation issued by the Chief Judge of the Eighth Judicial Circuit, the Honorable Mark W. Moseley. Afterwards, there will be a panel discussion moderated by Robert Folsom, President-Elect of the EJCBA. The Law Day panelists are the Honorable Clayton Roberts, Judge of the First District Court of Appeal for the State of Florida and Adjunct Constitutional Law Professor at Florida State University College of Law, and Laura Rosenbury, Dean and Levin, Mabie and Levin Professor of Law at University of Florida Levin College of Law. The panel discussion will include a question-and-answer portion with questions prepared by the moderator, submitted in advance by members of the Bar, and from the audience. The event will end with a speech by a local high school essay contest winner, who will speak on a legal theme of interest to the community.

The 2022 Law Day theme is "Toward a More Perfect Union: The Constitution in Times of Change." The Constitution is a dynamic document, as it not only outlines a blueprint for government, but also delegates power, articulates rights, and offers mechanisms for change. It is neither perfect, nor exhaustive, as our nation's history makes clear. Legislation, court rulings, amendments, lawyers, and "we the people" have built upon those original words across generations to attempt to make the "more perfect Union" more real. That effort continues today, as contemporary leaders and everyday citizens raise their voices as loud as ever to fulfill the promise of the Constitution. Defining and refining those words of the Constitution might be our oldest national tradition, and how each of us works-together-toward a more perfect Union.
