Every year, the Judiciary hosts contests to celebrate Law Day. Those include a poster contest capturing the Law Day theme for 3rd to 5th grade students, and an essay contest, often reflecting how the Law Day theme influences the CNMI, for 6th to 8th grade students. Awards are usually given on Law Day, held every year on May 1. The Judiciary, along with the Office of the Governor, the House of Representatives, and the Senate, also hold a proclamation signing ceremony for Law Day, signifying the importance of the rule of law in our island communities.
Due to the pandemic COVID-19, it is with deep regret that the Judiciary must cancel all Law Day activities until next school year. Attorney General Edward P. Manibusan has also canceled the Attorney General’s speech competition, which was to be held on May 1. The Judiciary thanks all the students on Rota, Saipan, and Tinian for their submissions this year. Please remain healthy and safe during these difficult times and we hope to see everyone next school year.
