Law Day

President Obama followed a tradition established by President Eisenhower by proclaiming May 1, 2011:  Law Day.  In 1961, Congress officially designated May 1 as Law Day.  Each year, the American Bar Association selects a theme for the Law Day celebration.  This year’s theme was The Legacy of John Adams: from Boston to Guantanamo.
