Each year on May 1st, the United States celebrates Law Day. First designated in 1958 by President Eisenhower, Law Day celebrates the rule of law and its contributions to Americans’ many freedoms. This year’s theme is “Advancing the Rule of Law Now.” The ABA will be presenting Advancing the Rule of Law Now: A Global Perspective, exploring the role of the United States within the international rule of law landscape. The program is scheduled for April 29, 2021 from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. This year, the ABA is also offering a Law Day 2021 Face Mask!
The Law Library of Congress has a Law Day Research Guide, with links to legislative and executive documents as well as books, journal articles and speech transcripts. Additional information on Law Day and materials relating to this year’s theme are on the ABA’s Law Day web page.
