May 1: Law Day in America celebrates the rule of law

Every year, our nation sets aside Law Day, May 1, to remind us of our of our great heritage of liberty, justice, and equality under law.

This year, Law Day commemorates the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, the “Great Charter of Liberties,” and calls upon upon each of us to "rededicate ourselves to advancing the principle of rule of law here and abroad."

Recently, I had the great honor to attend the 2014 National Lawyers Convention and hear United States Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia discuss the importance of Magna Carta.
