Upcoming Public Events

Public invited to celebrate Law Day at the Washington County Courthouse June 2

The Washington County Courthouse in Stillwater will open its doors to the public as part of a Law Day event designed to celebrate the 14th Amendment: Transforming American Democracy.  Court administration will provide information to the public about the rule of law and how it relates to administering justice in the Minnesota Judicial Branch. The public and media are invited to the event from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  

The event will feature an Information Fair, Ask an Attorney about 14th Amendment Rights, 14th Amendment Quiz, and a Jury Video at the courthouse. The courthouse is at 14949 62nd St. N. in Stillwater.

This event will include civil and criminal hearings and an information booth at the Historic Courthouse in conjunction with the Historic Courthouse 150th Anniversary. The Historic Courthouse is at 101 W. Pine St. in Stillwater. The hearings will begin at 9 a.m. at the Historic Courthouse.  

The 2017 theme provides the opportunity to explore the many ways in which the 14th Amendment has reshaped American law and society. Through its Citizenship, Due Process, and Equal Protection clauses, this transformative amendment advanced the rights of all Americans. It also played a pivotal role in extending the reach of the Bill of Rights to the states. Ratified during Reconstruction a century and a half ago, the 14th Amendment serves as the cornerstone of landmark civil rights legislation, the foundation for numerous federal court decisions protecting fundamental rights, and a source of inspiration for all those who advocate for equal justice under law.

Law Day is a national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law. Law Day underscores how law and the legal process have contributed to the freedoms that all Americans share. Law Day was first established in 1958 through a proclamation by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Congress passed a joint resolution designating May 1 as Law Day, USA in 1961.

The Law Day Open Courthouse event is being hosted by Washington County Judges, Court Administration, and the Washington County Law Library.
