Law Day

Law Day, held annually on May 1, is a national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law. Law Day provides an opportunity to understand how law and the legal process protect our liberty, strive to achieve justice, and contribute to the freedoms that all Americans share.

Law Day 2023

The 2023 Law Day theme will be “Cornerstones of Democracy: Civics, Civility, and Collaboration.” We invite all the people of the United States to join us in rebuilding trust in our institutions, respect for one another, and our willingness to collaborate to address the challenges that face our nation.

Cornerstones of Democracy

Civics, Civility, and Collaboration

In recent years, tensions in our democratic system have revealed deep divisions in American society. These divisions are aggravated by incivility in public discourse and insufficient understanding among many people about the Constitution and the way American government works. Together, however, we can collaborate to overcome our differences, resolve our disputes, and preserve our democracy and republic. To that end, we call on members of the legal profession to lead the way in promoting civics, civility, and collaboration—the cornerstones of our democracy.

Liberty Bell Award is Presented on Law Day

The purpose of the Liberty Bell Award program is to recognize community service that has strengthened the American system of freedom under the law. Any individual who has rendered outstanding service to his/her community may be considered eligible. While all fields of endeavor are intended for inclusion, the award's purpose is to accord public recognition to men and women, particularly non-lawyers, for outstanding service in one or more of these areas:

 Promoting a better understanding of our Constitution and the Bill of Rights;

 Encouraging greater respect for law and the courts;

 Stimulating a deeper sense of individual responsibility so that citizens recognize their duties as well as their rights;

 Contributing to the effective functioning of our institutions of governments; and

 Fostering a better understanding and appreciation of the rule of law.
