Separate Branches, Balanced Powers

Bench & Bar, by Susan Holden

Law Day at the Capitol

In 1958 President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed May 1 as Law Day. It is a special day of celebration set aside to recognize and strengthen our heritage of liberty, justice, and equality under the law.

Since that time, Law Day has been celebrated annually and the American Bar Association designates the theme. This year's theme, "Separate Branches, Balanced Powers," could not be timelier. When there are serious threats to the independence of the judiciary, both within the state of Minnesota and at the federal level, and when even members of Congress complain of violations of the separation of powers by the Justice Department in the FBI's search of a Representative's Washington, DC, office, there is no better time for dialogue about the need to preserve the balance of powers contemplated by the Founders.
