May 1st has been recognized as Law Day since 1958. Each year, on this day, Americans pause to rededicate themselves to the ideals of justice, equality, and the rule of law.
This year, in honor of Law Day, the Arizona Supreme Court and the Administrative Office of the Courts honored those who volunteer their time to court committees, commissions, activities, and ideals.
The theme of this year’s national Law Day is “Realizing the Dream: Equality for All.” To celebrate the dream of ensuring equality for all, the Arizona Judicial Branch chose to thank and recognize all of the justice system volunteers in Arizona who so generously give of their time, and work so hard to ensure that our courts work the way they should, for everyone, so that the dream of equality for all can be realized.
Volunteers provide valuable services, which extends the courts’ budgets, making it possible to better fulfill our mission in all areas. This translates into an enormous civic and economic impact in Arizona. But it’s not just about the money.Estimates show that there are more than 1500 volunteers donating time across the state to support the administration of justice.
To honor the volunteers, Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Rebecca White Berch has a message for all volunteers with Arizona courts:
