Law Day - 2021-05-01
What is Law Day?
Every year, America honors May 1st as Law Day. This holiday reminds us of the rights and freedoms we take for granted on a day-to-day basis. These personal rights are so important that they're enshrined in our national laws. On this special day, everyone should reflect on these important rights, which include freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and voting rights. Reflecting on the role of law in the foundation of our country, we are reminded that it is essential for supporting American democracy. Law Day asks us to look at the Declaration of Independence and the federal Constitution. The observance promotes recognition of these documents as the basis of American rights and freedoms. The American Bar Association organizes lots of events for students and community members. Some of them are essay writing contests, webinars, theater productions, Teen Court programs, fundraising for scholarships, and award presentations.
