Celebrating National Law Day, 2019
Law Day, held annually on May 1, is a national day set aside to celebrate the role of law. Law Day provides a 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.
President Dwight Eisenhower established the first Law Day in 1958 to mark the nation’s commitment to the rule of law. In 1961, Congress issued a joint resolution designating May 1 as the official date for celebrating Law Day, which is subsequently codified (U.S. Code, Title 36, Section 113). Every president since then has issued a Law Day proclamation on May 1 to celebrate the nation’s commitment to the rule of law. This year marks the 61st Anniversary of the event.
The 2019 Law Day theme – Free Speech, Free Press, Free Society – focuses on these cornerstones of representative government and call on us to understand and protect these rights to ensure, as the U.S. Constitution proposes, “the blessing of liberty for ourselves and our posterity.”
In the United States and around the world, freedom of speech and the press are among the most important foundations for a free society. Free speech and free press are prominent topics in public discourse and litigation. It is impossible to imagine a free society without these individual liberties, yet historical and current debates surrounding them continually challenge us to consider their boundaries and resilience. Changes in technology have reshaped how free speech and free press work in the everyday world.
