Law Day is a national day set aside (May 1) to celebrate the rule of law. In 1957, the American Bar Association (ABA) envisioned a special day for celebrating our legal system and it was further established by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. This annual day was created to strengthen our great heritage of liberty, justice, and equality under law.
