ABA President Laurel Bellows – Law Day 2013
Law Day is an annual event, which was originally conceived in 1957 when American Bar Association President Charles Rhynes envisioned a special national day to mark our commitment to the rule of law. The following year, President Dwight D. Eisenhower established the first Law Day. Law Day was made official in 1961 when Congress issued a joint resolution designating May 1 as the official date for celebrating Law Day. Edwards & Ragatz plans to host their annual Law Day Event on the first Thursday of every May.
