Court Observance Week
On October 14, 1974, President Gerald R. Ford signed a proclamation designating the second full week of October as NALS Court Observance Week. This proclamation established the basis for a NALS tradition of recognizing the skill and dedication to the system we serve. NALS has continued this tradition over the years by establishing an annual theme which our states and chapters promote when hosting Court Observance Week events locally. 

We encourage every member, chapter, and committee to organize, publicize, and participate in an event during NALS Court Observance Week in celebration of the constitutional freedoms our courts protect.  Read this year's theme for ideas. The possibilities are limited only by your creativity and dedication. And while you’re online, take time to read the full text of President Ford’s proclamation on The American Presidency Project’s website. It’s just another reminder of the importance of your contribution to the legal community.
