The U.S. Air Force’s (USAF) Creech Legal Office hosted its first ever “Law Day” event with attorneys from the Clark County Bar Association (CCBA) on May 4, 2023.  The theme for the event was “Cornerstones of Democracy: Civics, Civility, and Collaboration.”  Law Day took place in the Owl’s Nest at the Creech Air Force Base in southern Nevada. Attendees were invited to bring Star Wars paraphernalia as the décor was “May the 4th Be With You.” 

Activities were planned throughout the day with presentations made by Nevada lawyers, community partners, and law enforcement agencies. A morning session with continuing legal education programs for USAF legal personnel took place in the Creech legal office. Topics covered were related to family law and landlord tenant matters relevant to Nevada.

Eric Schmidt (second from left) and Command Chief Master Sgt. Adrienne Warren (second from right) at Creech Air Force Base, Nevada, May 4, 2023. The certificate was generated to commemorate the base’s first Law Day, an event that hosted legal agencies from all over Southern Nevada. The event also included a “May the Fourth Be With You” theme because it was held on what is recognized as “Star Wars Day.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Ariel O’Shea)
