Law Day 2015: U.S. Courts to Focus on Rule of Law (click to view more information)

For federal courts, Law Day 2015 will be an opportunity to educate the public about the rule of law, inspired in part by the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, which established the principle that no man or government is above the law.

Law Day, established in 1958, is officially honored May 1 but has evolved into a monthlong celebration across the nation. While some events, such as public exhibits at federal courthouses in Buffalo and Washington, D.C., are focusing specifically on the Magna Carta, many courts are conducting events with students that illustrate how the rule of law affects lives today.

The Middle District of Louisiana will be naturalizing 31 individuals at the annual Baton Rouge Bar Association's Law Day Celebration on May 1 at the Baton Rouge River Center Theatre.
