Today President Obama issued a proclamation declaring May 1, as Law Day. In it he honors this year’s Magna Carta theme.

“This Law Day, we celebrate a milestone in the extraordinary history of the rule of law by marking the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta...The ideals of the Magna Carta inspired America's forefathers to define and protect many of the rights expressed in our founding documents, which we continue to cherish today.”
