Celebrate Law Day

Without law, there’d be no legal ethics.  And that’s my hook to post about Law Day on a legal ethics blog.

May 1 is Law Day.  This year’s theme: the 14th Amendment.

The ABA has lots of great information on Law Day and how to commemorate it.   Chief Justice Roberts encouraged federal judges to recognize the day & the theme.  For an interesting read on the origin and continued importance of the 14th Amendment, check out Victor Li’s piece in the ABA Journal: The 14th: A Civil War-era amendment has become a mini-Constitution for modern times.  The amendment’s principal author, John Bingham, is pictured below.

Happy Law Day!
