Law Day - May 1

Since 1958, the U.S. President has annually recognized Law Day, and in 1961, Congress passed a joint resolution designating May 1 as the national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law. The 2021 theme, Advancing the Rule of Law Now, reminds all of us that we the people share the responsibility to promote the rule of law, defend liberty, and pursue justice.

  • Teachers, students, and members of the public are encouraged to use the collection of activities found on the Law Day webpage of the Judicial Learning Center.
