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 issued a proclamation officially establishing Law Day. Since then, every president has issued an annual proclamation.
