Smith County Law Day

On Friday, many Smith County attorneys gathered for the annual, "Law Day."

The American Bar Association president said this year's theme was titled, No Courts, No Justice, No Freedom - to highlight the importance of courts and the lack of funding.

The event allowed local lawyers the opportunity to raise awareness while recognizing some of East Texas' best.

"We recognize attorneys that have excelled in their profession. We recognize students that have won our poster contest and our essay contest each year," says Law Day 2012 Chairman Maryann Cozby.

Cozby says one of those student essay contestants even placed top in the state.
