History of Law Day
In 1958, at the urging of Charles Rhyne, then-President of the American Bar Association, Law Day was first proclaimed by President Dwight Eisenhower, setting aside the 1st of May of that year as the occasion to recognize our country’s “great heritage of liberty, justice and equality under law.” In his proclamation, President Eisenhower especially urged the legal profession to take a leading role in promoting and participating in this observance. In 1961, Congress, by joint resolution, officially designated May 1 for the celebration of Law Day. The Court of Federal Claims Bar Association organizes a Law Day luncheon program featuring a guest speaker on matters of interest to the Court community.
This year's Law Day Observance Luncheon was held on May 1, 2012.
