On April 29, 2021, the Law Library of Congress and the American Bar Association cosponsored an event to celebrate Law Day. Law Day is a national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law and an opportunity to understand how law and the legal process protect liberty and promote justice. The theme of this year’s Law Day was “Advancing the Rule of Law Now.” This year’s program explored the rule of law from an international perspective; specifically, how the United States contributes to global understandings of the rule of law, including through funding of rule of law projects, championing rule of law principles in international entities and settings, and cultivating an image as a rule of law country both at home and abroad.

The panel was moderated by Executive Director of the World Justice Project Elizabeth Andersen. She was joined by Former Deputy Prime Minister of Georgia and Former Ambassador for Georgia to the United States Temuri Yakobashvili, Senior Fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Ashley Quarcoo, and Law Library of Congress Senior Foreign Law Specialist Jenny Gesley. Opening remarks were provided by 2021 National Law Day Chair Will Gunn, American Bar Association President Patricia Lee Refo, and Acting Law Librarian of Congress Aslihan Bulut.
