CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Nevada Supreme Court is hosting an
interactive Law Day Live forum linking courtrooms in Las Vegas,
Carson City, and Winnemucca around an American Bar Association
theme honoring the legacy of the nation's second president, John Adams.

Court spokesman Bill Gang said a Thursday videoconference hook-up will be streamed live as an educational tool for middle and
high school students across the state.

Panels at each location will include judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys and law enforcers - moderated by Supreme Court Justice Nancy Saitta (SAY'-tah).

Adams was the first U.S. lawyer-president, and was a staunch advocate of the rule of law - including the principle that accused persons are entitled to a legal defense.

Adams defended British soldiers in court on charges after the Boston Massacre of 1770.
