In honor of Law Day, the PWC Bar Association is implementing several programs to benefit senior citizens, elementary school children and local not-for-profit organizations. Law Day is celebrated on May 1 each year to mark the nation’s commitment to the rule of law.
Senior Citizens Programs: The PWC Bar will host two educational seminars at each of the area’s senior centers in May. Presentations will be given on the topics of “Getting Your Records in Order So Your Family Doesn’t Have To” which will describe the documents you should have in place, who should have copies of them, and where to store them; and “The Importance of Insurance: Life, Disability and Umbrella Policies,” which will discuss types of policies, availability, and asset protection.
The seminar at the Manassas Senior Center, 9320 Mosby Street, Manassas will take place on Thursday, May 24 from 11:00 a. m. to 12:00 noon. The seminar at the at the Woodbridge Senior Center, 13850 Church Hill Drive, Woodbridge, will take place Tuesday, May 29, 2018, from 10:30 to 11:30 a. m. The seminars are open to the public and free of charge. No advance registration is required. Copies of the Senior Citizen’s Handbook will be distributed to seminar attendees. The books are made available through the Virginia State Bar.
Elementary School Program: The PWC Bar will donate a book to all elementary school libraries in Prince William County and the cities of Manassas and Manassas Park that complements the American Bar Association’s 2018 Law Day Theme, “Separation of Powers: Framework for Freedom.” The book to be donated is titled What Are the Three Branches of Government? and other questions about The U.S. Constitution, written by Ben Richmond. The book donation is made possible through a generous grant from the PWC Bar Foundation, and will take place in tandem with National Young Readers Day, designated to recognize the joys and benefits of reading.
Local Not-for Profit Organizations: The PWC Bar has developed a Speakers Bureau to serve as a resource for non-profit organizations to use to arrange for law-related educational programming for their members. Volunteers from the PWC Bar are available to visit organizations to give presentations on topics related to the focus of the organization, or on a general topic such as finding a lawyer; working with a lawyer; or an overview of the judicial system. To request a speaker, visit the Bar Association’s website, pwcba.org, and complete the Speaker Request Form, found under the Community Service tab on the home page.
