KAMLOOPS — On Tuesday night, the Kamloops courthouse plays host to a special event which gives families an inside glimpse into the legal system, most people likely don’t get.

Law Day is a national event, commemorating the signing of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. There will have a number of booths set up at the courthouse, showcasing everything from the RCMP, Corrections, the Legal Services Society, as well as other organisations that people can access when they’re involved in the justice system.

“[Law Day] is held not only to celebrate the signing of the Charter, but it’s also held to educate the public about the community services offered, the court system, and just to get a feel for what a courtroom is,” event organiser Aachal Gounder told CFJC Today.

Along with the booths, there will be an RCMP K-9 Unit demonstration at 5:30 on the front lawn of the courthouse. One of the signature events of law day is a mock trial, held in a real courtroom, to give those in attendance a feel for what an actual trail is all about. The mock trial begins at 7:30
