Law Day, celebrated every year on or about May 1, is an opportunity for all Americans to reflect on the rule of law and the foundations of our legal system. It’s a time to celebrate the rich history of our judicial system and a time to consider its future in this rapidly changing world. Law in the 21st Century: Enduring Traditions, Emerging Challenges is the theme for Law Day 2010. Law Day 2010 provides us with an opportunity to understand and appreciate the emerging challenges that confront our world – and the law – in the 21st century, while reaffirming enduring legal traditions.

We encourage everyone to acknowledge the importance of our legal and judicial systems with appropriate ceremonies and activities, and to display the flag of the United States and our State of Michigan in support of this educational observance. We further encourage schools, businesses, media, religious institutions, civic, and service organizations to join us and all members of the bar and bench in commemorating Law Day.
