Law Day - May 1, 2009

In 1961, the first day of May of each year was designated as Law Day. The observance of Law Day was intended "to foster respect for law, to increase public understanding of the place of law in American life; to point up the contrast between freedom under law and governmental tyranny." H.Rpt.165, March 15, 1961

"A Legacy of Liberty: Celebrating Lincoln's Bicententennial" is the 2009 Law Day theme. Visit the Law Day display in the library to view materials regarding Law Day as well as the Lincoln Legacy. You might even find a lucky Lincoln penny.

The schedule for Law Day activities in Oklahoma is available in the April 11, 2009 Oklahoma Bar Journal.
