Law Day has been observed every May 1 since its establishment in 1958 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to mark the nation's commitment to the rule of law. Activities are taking place in courthouses around the country – including several in Wisconsin - to support the American Bar Association's 2012 theme, "No Courts, No Justice, No Freedom" and promote public understanding of how courts and the judicial process work.Don't miss cake, courthouse tours, and legal clinics at the Dane County Courthouse today!
Our mission is to serve the legal information needs of the State of Wisconsin. If you're a library, a legal assistance organization, agency, or anyone else in need of law library resources, think about providing our brochure or bookmarks for your staff or the people you serve. We're available to assist you by phone or email. Don't forget to consult our Legal Topics and Learning Center online resources when you're doing research, or the new Wisconsin Court System self-help law center. If you're a teacher, be sure to take a look at the WI Court System's resources for educators and kids as well.
