The Monmouth Vicinage, in partnership with the Monmouth Bar Association, will host its annual Law Day ceremony on Thursday, May 4, from 4 to 5 p.m. in Courtroom 307 West at the Monmouth County Courthouse, 71 Monument Park, Freehold.
The program will focus on this year’s national theme “Cornerstones of Democracy: Civics, Civility, Collaboration.”

Monmouth Bar Association President F. Bradford Batcha will speak and join Judge Thornton in the presentation of awards to the student winners of the Law Day art, poetry, and essay contests. The Daniel J. O’Hern Mock Trial Award will be presented to the Colts Neck High School Mock Trial Team. The Abraham Zager Award for Professionalism will be presented to past bar association president James M. McGovern Jr.
The ceremony is cosponsored by the Monmouth Bar Association and the New Jersey State Bar Foundation and is made possible with funding from the IOLTA Fund of the state bar.
