LYRIC Law Days!
Law Day is a national day to recognize equality and justice under the law
On May 1, 1958, President Eisenhower proclaimed Law Day to honor the role of law in the creation of the United States of America. In fact, the American Bar Association defines Law Day as “A national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law. Law Day underscores how law and the legal process have contributed to the freedoms that all Americans share.” The language of the statute ordaining May 1 calls it “a special day of celebration by the American people in appreciation of their liberties and re-dedication to the ideals of equality and justice under law.”
