Fillmore Riley is one of the proud sponsors of Winnipeg Law Day 2017.

Fillmore Riley LLP is one of the proud sponsors of Winnipeg Law Day, which will be held at the Winnipeg Law Courts from noon until 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 9, 2017.

Law Day is a national event held every April that celebrates the signing of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. On April 17, 1982 Queen Elizabeth II and then Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau signed the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, thus guaranteeing fundamental rights and freedoms for all Canadians.

The Manitoba Bar Association and the Manitoba Department of Justice have organized a full roster of events and information sessions that will introduce the general public to various facets of law.

From tours of the Law Courts Building to mock trials presented by high school students, attendees will receive an opportunity to see the inner workings of our justice system. Other highlights include a special sitting of The Citizenship Court and demonstrations by a drug detector dog and a Victim Services Intervention dog.
