DUI Attorney Steve Sumner Speaks on Miranda Rights at Greenville, SC Law Week

South Carolina DUI Attorney Steve Sumner

"It was an honor to address my Upstate South Carolina colleagues on one of the most significant legal decisions in American history -- Miranda v Arizona."

DUI lawyer Steve Sumner was recently the featured speaker at the Greenville County Bar Association’s “Law Week Luncheon” on April 25th. The event was held at the Poinsett Club.

Sumner addressed this year’s theme -- “Miranda”: More than Words.” The presentation consisted of the significance of the Miranda v Arizona decision, along with significant subsequent court cases addressing “Miranda rights” issues. The luncheon speech was part of LAW WEEK 2016.

President Dwight Eisenhower established the first Law Day in 1958 to mark the nation’s commitment to the rule of law.

Every president since then has issued a Law Day proclamation to celebrate the nation’s commitment to the rule of law.
