At 7:30 PM, Bar Association members united for the first time to get acquainted to the jobs they would be holding. Luther Liggett, attorney at law, began the meeting and introduced the members of a trial that would be demonstrated. The honorable Common Pleas Court Judge, Nick Selvaggio presided over the trial in which a boy was charged with traffic violations. On the prosecution side, Ohio State Trooper of the Year for 2020 answered questions about what he witnessed during the traffic stop. Ultimately, attorney Luther Liggett used this trial to educate association members on the proper way to deliver an argument with examples of 'the Greek temple' and 'Issue Tree.'

Day 3
At 8:15 AM the honorable Judge Dunn called to order the third gathering of the Buckeye Boys State Bar Association continuation of legal education meeting. Judge Dunn introduced the honorable Judge Selvaggio to discuss an important topic in law - rules and ethics. Justice Selvaggio compared ethics to a football field explaining that as long as one stays within the perimeter of the field, they are okay and acting ethically. Justice Selvaggio explained the specific considerations for lawyers and judges while reminding everyone that law is not a competition, but rather the practice of ensuring everyone is treated with justice. Upon close of the meeting, lawyers took "A Lawyer's Creed" and judges took "A Judicial Creed."
