Happy Law Day

happy law day

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. This day is focused on helping people appreciate their liberties and affirm United States principles of equality and justice. It also aims to cultivate respect for the law, which is a vital component of the democratic way of life.

This day is typically observed with in-person events held to gather legal professionals, students, businesses, and organizations, but given the Covid-19 pandemic and social distancing measures in place, observation this year continues in the form of virtual events such as on-line workshops, panel discussions and Q & As.
