Mark your calendars for LAW DAY!

April 6th, 2024

Celebrate Law Day at the Rossland Courthouse 

The Rossland Law Courts in association with the Kootenay Bar open their doors to the public to come  wander through these historic walls of the Rossland Courthouse building on Saturday, May 4, 2024, from  11:00am – 2:00pm. Law Day is an annual national event (typically in April) celebrating the signing of  Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It is an occasion for the public to learn about the law, the  legal profession and the legal institutions that form the cornerstones of Canadian democracy.

There is something for everyone with building tours, mock trials, scavenger hunts, and a little bit of  history showcased by the Rossland Museum. The Kootenay Bar will also conduct mock bail hearings  (with a few laughs along the way), Sheriffs will be on hand to open the holding cells and multiple other  law partners will also be in attendance to answer questions.

Where: Rossland Courthouse, 2288 Columbia Avenue, Rossland, BC 

When: Saturday, May 4, 2024 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm 

Why: Because everyone loves a family oriented community event
