The Law Library of Congress and the American Bar Association Standing Committee on the Law Library of Congress will co-sponsor the annual Law Day 2018 event on Tuesday, May 1 at 3:00 p.m. in Room LJ-119 of the Jefferson Building.

Law Day, held annually on May 1, is a national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law. Law Day underscores how law and the legal process contribute to the freedoms that all Americans share. Law Day also provides an opportunity to recognize the role of courts in democracy and the importance of jury service to maintaining the integrity of the courts.

For this year’s event, the Law Librarian of Congress Jane Sánchez will interview American Bar Association President Hilarie Bass on the separation of powers–a phrase that does not appear in the text of the U.S. Constitution but which remains an important concept in understanding how the U.S. government is designed.

The program is free and open to the public. Please register via Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/law-day-2018-lecture-tickets-45356446352.
