Law Day 2016 Miranda More Than Words

2016 Law Day Program - 50th Anniversary of Miranda v. Arizona

In 2016, the nation marks the 50th anniversary of perhaps the nation’s best-known U.S. Supreme Court case, Miranda v. Arizona. The Miranda Warning has become ingrained in law enforcement and has permeated popular consciousness through countless recitations in films and television shows. Yet Miranda is only part of the story when it comes to the procedures for ensuring justice. The 2016 Law Day theme — Miranda: More than Words — will explore the procedural protections afforded to all of us by the U.S. Constitution, how these rights are safeguarded by the courts, and why the preservation of these principles is essential to our liberty (ABA Division for Public Education).

ABA President Paulette Brown discusses Miranda and 2016 Law Day in this video.

The ABA 2016 Law Day Planning Guide for educators is available here, and the U.S. Courts have provided resources for 2016 Law Day here.
