The 2019 ceremony is focused on the 4th Amendment in the 21st Century Digital Age

Yosemite National Park is proud to host the 7th Annual Law Day to commemorate and celebrate our national ideals of liberty, justice, equality and the importance of the rule of law. Over 300 eighth grade students from Yosemite’s local gateway communities will be in attendance, including students from Mariposa, Lake Don Pedro, Coarsegold, Greeley Hill, Fresno and more.

This special ceremony will take place at Half Dome Village in Yosemite Valley on Friday, May 3, 2019 from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon.

The Honorable Jeremy Peterson, Magistrate Judge for United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, Yosemite Division will be joined by judges from across California to celebrate the law and this year’s student Law Day Essay Contest Winners. Students submitted essays on the topic of “What is Unreasonable Search and Seizure in the Digital Age?” The top three winning essays will be read in person and awards will be presented to the winning writers.

This year’s keynote speaker is Antigone Peyton, a Virginia attorney specializing in the intersection of law and technology, who will be discussing the ways in which the technological marvels of our fast-paced digital age may be dramatically eroding personal privacy rights.

The program will also feature Yosemite National Park’s Mounted Patrol presenting the colors, Lauren Boone’s solo National Anthem, and the Clovis High School Jazz Band.

Law Day was first proclaimed in 1958 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Today, schools and courtrooms across the United States take time on May 1 each year to honor and celebrate the study of the law and the legal profession. Yosemite National Park is proud to partner with the San Joaquin Chapter of the Federal Bar Association, Yosemite Hospitality, Yosemite Conservancy, McCormick Barstow, LLP, and many other organizations for this great event.
