  Law Day Exhibit at the Law Library of Louisiana

 

The 2013 national Law Day theme is Realizing the Dream: Equality for All. From the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, to women obtaining the right to vote in 1920, to the March on Washington in 1963, to the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act in 2009, the United States has been a place where its citizens strive to achieve the dream so eloquently described in Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous speech. This year’s Law Day seeks to explore the progress the nation has made towards equality under the law and the work that yet needs to be accomplished. Law Day, celebrated each year on May 1, is a national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law, to recognize the importance of law and the legal process in maintaining the freedoms shared by all Americans. Law Day provides an opportunity to highlight the role of courts in our democracy and how our legal system strives to achieve justice. The Law Library’s Law Day exhibit features four cases focusing on selected aspects of equality and fairness in the United States: voting and civil rights, tolerance, diversity, gender equality, and human rights. The strong foundations set long ago by a coalition of activists, ministers, and politicians support the ongoing efforts of those involved in the struggle for equality. As Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
