What Does the Rule of Law Mean to YOU?



Law Day, held annually on May 1, is a national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law. Law Day provides an opportunity to understand how law and the legal process protect our liberty, strive to achieve justice, and contribute to the freedoms that all Americans share.

Street Law has a global footprint in rule of law programming. As we now work to develop a nationwide rule of law curriculum for middle and high school students in the United States, we decided celebrating rule of law for only one day just wasn't enough, so we turned the entire month of May into a rule of law celebration!

We asked dozens of ambassadors, teachers, students, corporate leaders, academicians, legal experts, & other thought leaders across the country the same question: "What does the rule of law mean to YOU?"

Although their answers were published on social media throughout May, we've created a collection of their responses below.
