So what is Law Day?!
In 1961, a Joint Resolution of Congress set aside May 1 as a special day for all Americans to celebrate our liberties and to reaffirm our loyalty to the USA.
It’s a day for us to consider our duties and responsibilities such as (1) keep informed about government and community affairs, (2) vote in elections, (3) respect others’ rights, (4) obey and respect the law and (5) serve on juries and as court witnesses if called.
At &VERTISING INC, we think it’s also a good day to read the Illinois State Bar Association’s Legal Health Checkup, a 12-page educational guide created by us.
(BTW, if you’re going to hand out free copies on Michigan Avenue, a good place to start is on the plaza outside NBC 5 Chicago’s news studio. Yes, they turned the camera on us!!
