Law Day

Each year on May 1st, Law Day provides an opportunity for everyone to reflect on our legal heritage, on the role of law, and on the rights and duties which are the foundation of peace and prosperity for all mankind. In the late 1950s, the American Bar Association instituted May 1 as Law Day to draw attention to both the principles and practice of law and justice. President Dwight D. Eisenhower established Law Day by proclamation in 1958.

Law Day May 2

"The Role of the American Lawyer in a Global Society"

Delano Lewis, former U.S. ambassador to South Africa and retired chief executive officer of National Public Radio (NPR) will speak at the Law Day Luncheon to be held at the Hyatt.

Lewis earned a bachelor's degree in political science and history from Kansas University in 1960 and a law degree from Washburn University in 1963. He worked as an attorney for the U.S. Justice Department and later for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. From 1966 to 1969, Lewis served in the U.S. Peace Corps as associate director in Nigeria and later as country director in Uganda. On his return from Africa, he was named director of the Peace Corps' East and Southern Africa Division. After rising through the ranks of C&P Telephone in Washington, D.C., he became president and CEO. In 1994 he became CEO of National Pubic Radio. Lewis retired from NPR in 1998, and one year later was appointed by former President Bill Clinton as U.S. ambassador to South Africa.

Law Library Tradition

With the support of the Friends of the Law Library of Congress, the Law Library has developed its own annual tradition to observe Law Day as a way to celebrate the significance of law and the legal profession here and in other countries of the world, as well as reflect the wealth of its vast global collection, and the expertise and diverse background of its unique staff. Over the years, the programs of these events have varied from featuring a single speaker lecturing on a particular aspect of law to a panel of participants offering selected readings ranging from scholarly essays on law and justice to fictionalized accounts of lawyering, from antiquity to the present day, and from a variety of countries.

ROAST (August)

Friends of the Peace Corps 170,000  strong Date: April 2 2005 No: 543 Friends of the Peace Corps 170,000 strong
170,000 is a very special number for the RPCV community - it's the number of Volunteers who have served in the Peace Corps since 1961. It's also a number that is very special to us because March is the first month since our founding in January, 2001 that our readership has exceeded 170,000. And while we know that not everyone who comes to this site is an RPCV, they are all "Friends of the Peace Corps." Thanks everybody for making PCOL your source of news for the Returned Volunteer community.
