Law Day

Tracing its roots back to May 1, 1958, Law Day commemorates the significance of the rule of law in American citizenship. Our United States Code declares: “Law Day, U.S.A., is a special day of celebration by the people of the United States…in appreciation of their liberties and the reaffirmation of their loyalty to the United States and of their rededication to the ideals of equality and justice under law in their relations with each other and with other countries; and for the cultivation of the respect for law that is so vital to the democratic way of life.”

Law Day has become a venerated tradition in the American legal community. Courts, firms, educational institutions, and bar associations across the nation celebrate the occasion with events and programs designed in accord with an annual theme assigned by the American Bar Association. The Alabama State Bar contributes to the Law Day celebration by sponsoring student competitions recognizing teachers and students in grades K-12.
