36:2-6. Law Day on May 1; annual proclamation by Governor
The Governor of the State of New Jersey is requested to issue annually an appropriate proclamation designating May 1 as "Law Day" and calling upon all citizens and residents of this State to commemorate and observe said day as a special day of celebration in appreciation of their liberties and the reaffirmation of their loyalty to the United States of America; of their rededication to the ideals of equality and justice under law and respect for basic human rights; and for the cultivation of that respect for law that is so vital to the democratic way of life. The citizens and residents of this State are urged to partake in the appropriate observance of "Law Day," including the display of the flag of the United States and consideration of the sanctity of law and respect for its impartial principles so unfortunately absent in many other nations throughout the world.
