Law Day


Law Day, held annually on May 1, is a national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law. Law Day provides an opportunity to understand how law and the legal process protect our liberty, strive to achieve justice, and contribute to the freedoms that all Americans share.



A Proclamation is signed each year by the Kansas Governor and the Topeka, Kan. Mayor  

Liberty Bell Award is Presented on Law Day

The purpose of the Liberty Bell Award program is to recognize community service that has strengthened the American system of freedom under the law. Any individual who has rendered outstanding service to his/her community may be considered eligible. While all fields of endeavor are intended for inclusion, the award's purpose is to accord public recognition to men and women, particularly non-lawyers, for outstanding service in one or more of these areas:

 Promoting a better understanding of our Constitution and the Bill of Rights;

 Encouraging greater respect for law and the courts;

 Stimulating a deeper sense of individual responsibility so that citizens recognize their duties as well as their rights;

 Contributing to the effective functioning of our institutions of governments; and

 Fostering a better understanding and appreciation of the rule of law.
