May 1st is Law Day

I can't believe they didn't give me the day off! It's Law Day, so I guess I should wish all those lawyers and pre-lawyers and sort of ex-lawyers whose blogs I cruise (more on the right), not to mention one or two co-workers and every single one of my um...clients, customers, whatever you call them if you're a programmer...happy Law Day! The Library of Congress moderated panel seems a little tongue in cheek, however: "Separate Branches, Balanced Powers: Madison’s Legacy".

Each year on May 1st, Law Day provides an opportunity for everyone to reflect on our legal heritage, on the role of law, and on the rights and duties which are the foundation of peace and prosperity for all mankind.

In the late 1950s, the American Bar Association instituted May 1 as Law Day to draw attention to both the principles and practice of law and justice. President Dwight D. Eisenhower established Law Day by proclamation in 1958.
