Guest column: " No courts, no justice, no freedom"

Law Day is an annual event, which was originally conceived in 1957 when American Bar Association President Charles Rhynes envisioned a special national day to mark our commitment to the rule of law. The following year, President Dwight D. Eisenhower established the first Law Day. Law Day was made official in 1961 when Congress issued a joint resolution designating May 1 as the official date for celebrating Law Day. This year’s Law Day theme is “No Courts, No Justice, No Freedom.”

Each year, the Gallatin County Bar Association hosts a variety of activities to celebrate Law Day with the distinct purpose of educating the public about our justice system, the judicial branch of our government, the history of law in the United States and the legal profession. This year the Montana Supreme Court will again hear oral arguments at the MSU SUB Ballroom on April 30, 2012 beginning at 9:30 a.m. This event is open to the public and is a great opportunity for the public to witness firsthand our state’s highest court in action.
