In Florida, the CRC convenes every 20 years to hold public hearings and then put amendments to the Florida Constitution directly on the ballot for voters to decide. In 1998, the CRC put nine proposals before voters, who adopted eight of them.
The public has a chance to get involved with the CRC by suggesting people to be appointed to the commission; attending hearings and offering ideas for amendments; and voting on proposals that make it to the ballot in November 2018.
After being trained in the webinar, attorneys will be able to take the “Every 20 Years” Benchmarks presentation to civic groups in their communities wanting to learn more about the commission and its work.
“Benchmarks: Raising the Bar on Civics Education” is a Florida Bar program offering civics education for adults in a fast-paced and engaging format. Questions: Email email@example.com or call (850) 561-5669.
Law Day in Florida proclaimed by Gov. Rick Scott
The 2016 Law Day theme — Miranda: More than Words — goes beyond the familiar Miranda Warning and 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.
For your information and use, a Law Day 2016 Planning Guide can be downloaded here. The Guide is loaded with resources to assist in your organizations upcoming Law Day celebration. There are also other materials available on the ABA Law Day website at www.lawday.org.
