Law Day

Law Day is held on May 1st every year to celebrate the role of law in our society and to cultivate a deeper understanding of the legal profession. 

History of Law Day:

"President Dwight Eisenhower established the first law day in 1958 to mark the nation's commitment to the rule of law. In 1961, congress issued a joint resolution designing May 1 as the official date for celebrating Law Day, which is subsequently codified (U.S. Code, Title 36, Section 113). Every president since then as issued law day proclamation on May 1 to celebrate the nation's commitment to the rule of law."
