Over 100 students from Miami Central and Hialeah High Schools met with U.S. District Court Judge Laurel M. Isicoff, and several attorneys, at the James Lawrence King Federal Justice Building for a five-hour Law Day program that included watching court in session.

Students also honored the rule of law on the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta as well as learned how it inspired basic rights including due process. The Law Day events were a collaboration between District Court Judges Beth Bloom and Bankruptcy Court Judge Laurel M. Isicoff, the Southern District Court of Florida, the Federal Bar Association and Miami-Dade Public Schools. Disability Rights Attorney, Matthew Dietz, assisted in organizing the event.
