LAW DAY 2021

Established by proclamation in 1958, Law Day is a long-standing national tradition. At BC Law, we mark Law Day with a signature event held near to the national Law Day on May 1. This gathering celebrates the most important goals of the legal profession: to advance equality and justice, encourage observation and enforcement of the law, and to foster respect for law and an understanding of its essential place in the life of every citizen.
