Martin Luther King Jr. Day, 2015

In observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Law Library will be closed on Monday, January 19.

The Birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. became a federal holiday (5 U.S.C. § 6103(a)) fifteen years after Martin Luther King, Jr.’s death. The holiday was first observed in 1986, but it took another 17 years for nationwide recognition. In 1994, the holiday was designated a day of service under the direction of the Corporation for National and Community Service.
