Law Day, held annually on May 1, is a national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law. Law Day underscores how law and the legal process contribute to the freedoms that all Americans share and also provides an opportunity to recognize the role of courts in a constitutional democracy.

The text of the Fourteenth Amendment is often cited by litigators, civil rights activists, constitutional scholars, and, of course, judges. Here, we take a look at the most cited clauses and offer avenues to explore how they have shaped our constitutional understanding and our everyday experiences. Law Day 2017 gives us a unique opportunity to look at the text of the amendment and explore its origins, evolution, and current application.


Ratified on July 9, 1868, the Fourteenth Amendment is one of three Reconstruction Amendments. The Thirteenth Amendment, abolishing slavery, was ratified in 1865; the Fifteenth Amendment, prohibiting the federal and state governments from denying citizens the right to vote based on that citizen’s race, color, or previous condition of servitude, was ratified in 1870.

NALS is participating as an Alliance Partner for American Bar Association's 2017 Law Day (www.lawday.org).
