NOTARY NEWS

The Ohio Secretary of State has approved the Lake County Bar Association as an authorized provider to administer the education program and test required to become or renew a notary commission effective Friday, September 20, 2019. Applicants must directly contact and pay the required fee to the authorized provider for the education and/or testing required. The authorized provider will provide a certification upon the completion of the required education and testing which the applicant must submit with the application to the Secretary of State.

Non-attorneys are required to submit a criminal records check when applying for a commission or a renewal. Applicants should obtain the criminal records check prior to completing the education and test to ensure there are no reports of a disqualifying offense, which would prohibit the applicant from obtaining or renewing a commission. Fees paid to the authorized provider are non-refundable if the commission or renewal application is rejected by the Secretary of State.

LAW DAY 2019
The 43rd Annual Law Day Breakfast hosted by the Lake County Bar Association was held on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at LaMalfa in Mentor, Ohio. Over 300 individuals including bar members, public officials, community leaders, past Liberty Bell and President Award honorees and Mock Trial team members attended the event.
Lake County Bar President, Paul Malchesky, presented the 2019 President's Award to James P. Koerner, an attorney who has practiced in Lake County for over 40 years. Mr. Koerner personifies all the required qualifications of the President's Award which is presented to an attorney who is deemed by the Lake County Bar Association to provide "Outstanding service to the community and service to the profession." Mr. Koerner is a past president of the Lake County Bar Association and also past chair of the Lake County Bar Foundation and also a board member of the Trustees of Crossroads.
The 2019 Liberty Bell Award is presented to an individual, particularly non-lawyer, for outstanding service in one of these areas:

2. Encouraging greater respect for law and the courts;
3. Stimulating a deeper sense of individual responsibility so that citizens recognize their duties as well
​ as their rights;
4. Contributing to the effective functioning of our institutions of government; and
5. Fostering a better understanding and appreciation of the rule of law.
This years' award winner is Nicholas Cindric, Clerk of Courts for Painesville Municipal Court from 2006 to present under Judge Michael Cicconetti.

LAKE COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION
Law Day 2019 Art Contest Guidelines
Grades 1-12

Law Day Background Information: Established by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1958, Law Day celebrates and strengthens the American heritage of Liberty, Justice and Equality under the law. It provides an opportunity to help students and the public understand how the law protects our freedoms through programs and activities conducted by schools, bar associations, courts and civic groups.

More information, planning resources and materials are available for teachers and students at www.lawday.org.

Theme and Submission: The theme for Law Day 2019 is: Free Speech. Free Press. Free Society.

In the United States and around the world, freedom of speech and the press are among the most important foundations for a free society. Free speech and free press are prominent topics in public discourse and litigation. It is impossible to imagine a free society without these individual liberties, yet historical and current debates surrounding them continually challenge us to consider their boundaries and resilience. Changes in technology have reshaped how free speech and free press work in the everyday world. Your artwork must depict this theme. Feel free to use your imagination in depicting the theme in your artwork!

Identification of Submitted Art: On the back lower right corner of the art, each contestant must include: Name of student, school of student, grade and level of student, name of art teacher.

Criteria: Art entries will be judged on the following:

1. Originality 3. Craft/technique 5. Appeal
2. Design 4. Use of Theme

Winners: All winning artists and their parents will be invited to the Law Day Breakfast to be publicly honored by the Lake County Bar Association and the attending dignitaries, to be held on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at LaMalfa, 5783 Heisley Road, Mentor, Ohio.

Deadline: April 12, 2019, 4:00 p.m. by mail: Lake County Bar Association, P.O. Box 490, Painesville, Ohio 44077, email: [email protected] , or hand delivered to: Courthouse West Annex, 2nd Floor, 25 North Park Place, Painesville.

Rules: Students may use any medium (watercolor, acrylic, oil, crayon, chalk, collage, pen & ink); no frame is necessary; no sculpture or three dimensional or demonstrational pieces; maximum size of 18” x 24”.
