History of Law Day

Law Day is May 1st every year to celebrate the role of law in our society and to cultivate a deeper understanding of the legal profession.  President Dwight Eisenhower established the first Law Day in 1958 to mark the nation's commitment to the rule of law. In 1961, Congress issued a joint resolution designating May 1 as the official date for celebrating Law Day.  Every president since then has issued a Law Day proclamation on May 1 to celebrate the nation's commitment to the rule of law.
