DC Superior Court Posts Video Conversation between Chief Judge Josey-Herring and local radio personality Yasmine Arrington of Millennial Minds
Law Day was established in 1957 by President Eishenhower and the America Bar Association with the goal of celebrating the role of law in our society and to cultivate a deeper understanding of the judicial system and legal profession. The 2021 Law Day theme is “Advancing the Rule of Law Now.” The rule of law is the bedrock of American rights and liberties—in times of calm and unrest alike. The 2021 Law Day theme—Advancing the Rule of Law, Now—reminds all of us that we the people share the responsibility to promote the rule of law, defend liberty, and pursue justice. Yasmine Arrington was online with Chief Judge Anita Josey-Herring to talk about this year's Law Day theme as part of D.C. Superior Court’s Public Education and Court Independence initiative which aims to educated the public about the work of the Court.

"I was pleased to be able to talk to Ms. Arrington and glad we could record video of the conversation so that we can share it with others. Ms. Arrington is a clearly multi-talented young woman with degrees in communications and religion. She represents her generation well and has a passion for discussing issues of concern to her peers through their unique perspective. Our discussion was wide-ranging and I think demonstrated the array of legal issues that were 'front and center' ove the past year or so," said Chief Judge Josey-Herring.
