Law Day 2017 & The Fourteenth Amendment : Transforming American Democracy
May 1 has been proclaimed Law Day by every President of the United States since Dwight D. Eisenhower. It is observed throughout the nation as a day to celebrate the freedoms we enjoy, to reflect upon the ideals of liberty and justice that we hold dear, and to instill—especially in young people—an abiding respect for the law.
Every year the American Bar Association chooses a different theme for the observation. This year’s choice is “The Fourteenth Amendment: Transforming Democracy.”
