DeKalb Bar Celebrates Law Day 2017

Law Day 2017: The 14th Amendment

In 1961 Congress issued a joint resolution designating May 1 as Law Day. This was subsequently codified in the United Stated Code. Law Day is celebrated across the country during the month of May and is a day on which we take time to examine and celebrate our commitment to the rule of law. It is the opportunity for legal professionals to take an active role in advancing public understanding about law.

Law Day underscores how law and the legal process contribute to the freedoms that all Americans share.

Law Day programs are conducted by bar groups, courts, schools, youth groups, and community organizations, just to name a few. Each year the DeKalb Bar Association dedicates the May luncheon to recognizing all the Law Day activities of the DeKalb Bar Association. 

Liberty Bell Award

This year the DeKalb Bar Association awarded Toni Roberts with the Liberty Bell Award. This award is given to a community member who encourages other community members to respect the laws and legal system, and to learn more about and take a more active role in our American justice.
