On May 1st, the United States observes Law Day to celebrate our legal system and the freedoms Americans enjoy.
In celebration of Law Day, the New York State Courts Office for Justice Initiatives, Access to Justice Division, sponsors events designed to provide the public with information about state and local social and legal services. Events are celebrated in different counties in New York City and occasionally held in areas outside of New York City. In past years, government and social service agencies have participated by staffing resource tables and preparing written material to educate the public about what services are available to meet their social and legal needs.
Past participants have included Safe Horizons, Rent Stabilization Association, Department of the Aging, New York City Bar Association - Legal Referral Service, New York State Court Officers Association, and the Association of Small Claims Arbitrators.
