Every year in May, Law Week is celebrated with National Law Day events throughout the country. Law Week and Law Day, originally proclaimed by President Eisenhower in 1958, celebrates the justice system and its role in democracy.

As part of the national celebration of Law Week, Legal Services of North Florida, the Legal Aid Foundation of Tallahassee, and The Florida State University College of Law will jointly host a Law Day celebration virtually to recognize attorneys and judges for their service in the 2nd judicial circuit.
