Law Day USA — An Annual Abrams Landau Tradition

Doug Landau and intern Isaac Moore had a good time at the annual Weiner Roast.
Doug Landau and intern Isaac Moore enjoyed the festivities at the annual Weiner Roast.  This fun event was part of the annual Fairfax Bar Association Law Day.

Even before he started trying cases in 1984, Doug Landau was an active participant in the annual Law Day USA Proceedings.

In the 1980s, then law student Landau gave an annual Law Day USA address for the American Bar Association (ABA) program in downtown Miami, Florida. When lawyer Landau returned to Northern Virginia, he continued his participation in various county, state, and other Law Day events.

This year, Doug Landau attended the Fairfax Bar Association’s Law Day festivities, and was accompanied by George Mason University law student intern Isaac Moore. Landau, a third-generation lawyer, is thrilled to have Isaac on the team, as Isaac’s mother was a hard-working, loyal and accomplished paralegal who worked with Doug in Alexandria, Virginia. Landau has also worked with other members of Isaac’s family, and the continuity and family connections go deep.

Generously hosted by Doug’s friend Ed Weiner and his law firm, this year’s festivities included the traditional “wiener roast,” Irish dancing,” George Mason University Jazz, singing, the rear proclamations, and attendance by many Circuit Court judges and several hundred of the best lawyers in Fairfax County.

“There were also opportunities for charitable donation, and the excellent weather and root beer floats contributed to everyone’s having a great time. This annual Fairfax courthouse event seems to get bigger and better every single year”, said Landau. “It is a terrific opportunity for lawyers and judges to get together away from the court room, and to celebrate the many benefits of being a United States citizen with the legal system unique to our country.
