Teaching the Rule of Law and Law Day

Did you know, annually, the United States recognizes May 1 as Law Day? Law Day was established in 1958 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower after the American Bar Association (ABA) had presented the idea a year earlier. The day was codified on April 7, 1961, with the passage of Joint Resolution 87-20 by Congress. On Law Day we reflect on and recognize the role that law plays in our society.
