On May 1, 2019 at 1:30 p.m., the Law Library of Congress will present its annual Law Day event. Join Law Librarian of Congress, Jane Sánchez, in a conversation with American Bar Association President, Bob Carlson, for a discussion on this year’s Law Day topic, “Free Speech, Free Press, Free Society.”
Please register for this event via Eventbrite.
The discussion will take place in Room LJ-119, located on the first floor of the Thomas Jefferson Building, 10 First Street S.E., Washington, D.C. In addition, a collections display featuring items from the Law Library of Congress and the Serials and Government Document Division will be open at LJ-113 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Held annually on May 1, Law Day is a national day 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.
This program is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required but registration is highly recommended.

This looks a brilliant event and I wish I was still at the LoC to attend it! Are you going to record it or write up the discussion at all? If so please do let me know as it I am now writing up the research on 18th century freedom of the press I did in the Law Library as a Kluge fellow last autumn.
