National Bar Association President Benjamin Crump honored more than
800 area attorneys for their contributions to pro bono legal services for those who cannot afford
legal representation throughout North Florida at the Annual Law Day Celebration, Tuesday at
the FSU Alumni Center.
Every year in May, Law Week is celebrated with National Law Day events throughout the

As part of the national celebration of Law Week, Legal Services of North Florida and the Legal
Aid Foundation of Tallahassee jointly host a Law Day celebration to recognize attorneys and
judges for their service.
