Law Day

It was the American Bar Association that persuaded President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1958 to set aside a day to commemorate the role of law in the United States. But it wasn’t until 1961 that a joint resolution of Congress designated May 1 as Law Day, and President John F. Kennedy asked Americans to display the flag and observe the occasion with appropriate programs—typically mock trials, courthouse tours, and essay contests. Most Law Day exercises today are sponsored by the American Bar Association in cooperation with state and local bar associations. Discuss
