Happy Law Day!

Law Day is a special day aimed to help people appreciate their liberties and to affirm their loyalty to the United States, especially with regard to equality and justice.

Law Day originated in 1957 when American Bar Association President Charles Rhyne envisioned a special day for celebrating the US legal system.  On February 3, 1958, President Dwight Eisenhower established Law Day by issuing a proclamation.  Every president since then has issued an annual Law Day proclamation. In 1961, May 1 was designated by joint resolution of Congress as the official date for celebrating Law Day.
