Stop by the Law Library and pick up a Law Day bookmark.

Law Day – May 1, 2012

No Courts – No Justice – No Freedom…. this is the theme of this year’s Law Day which “highlights the importance of the courts in ensuring access to justice for all Americans.”

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 designating May 1 as the official date for celebrating Law Day, which is subsequently codified (U.S. Code, Title 36, §113). Every president since then has issued a Law Day proclamation on May 1 to celebrate the nation’s commitment to the rule of law.
