Law Day 2012 No Courts, No Justice, No Freedom

Florida attorneys will join bar associations and other legal groups throughout the country to celebrate Law Day. Each May, The Florida Bar observes Law Day to commemorate the rule of law, the judiciary and its place in American society. The idea of a national Law Day was conceived in 1957 by American Bar Association President Charles Rhynes. In 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower established the first Law Day and in 1961 the U.S. Congress issued a joint resolution making May 1 the official Law Day. Gov. Rick Scott has signed a proclamation recognizing May 1 as Law Day in Florida. Dwight D. Eisenhower’s 1958 presidential proclamation and a joint resolution of the U.S. Congress declared May 1 as “a special day of celebration by the American people in appreciation of their liberties.” Various educational programs, community functions and public ceremonies will take place throughout the week of April 30 – May 4, 2012.
