National Law Day
Tuesday May 1st is National Law Day. It was first conceived in the late 1950's by the American Bar Association as a way to reflect on the nation's legal heritage and on the ways in which the legal system can be improved to achieve greater social justice. Congress designated May 1st as the official date by joint resolution in 1961.
Since the later 1950's , the
ABA, state and local bar associations, business and schools have conducted
thousands of Law Day programs connected to some aspect of American law.
The Law Related Education Committee of the State Bar of Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Public Defender's Office are co-sponsoring a public forum entitled Juveniles in the Justice System. The forum will take place on Tuesday, May 1st at the Beloit City County Building, 100 State Street, Beloit, WI.
