About Law Day

Each year on May 1, the United States celebrates Law Day. Originally proposed by the ABA, in 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed the first Law Day to strengthen our country's heritage of liberty, justice and equality under the law. It was made part of the U.S. Code as Public Law 87-20 on April 7, 1961. The concept was to recognize the importance of the rule of law and both its effect and structure in our country. Over the years, legal and civic organizations nationwide have used these general ideas to develop educational programs for the public.
