Advancing the Rule of Law Now: A Global Perspective
The theme for Law Day 2021 is "Advancing the Rule of Law Now," and this program will explore the rule of law from an international perspective, specifically, the role of the United States within the international rule of law landscape.

The rule of law is the bedrock of American rights and liberties, but the United States also serves, for many, as a beacon of sustained rule of law around the world. How has this changed in recent years? How do rule of law moments in the United States affect other countries? Can the United States still claim a leadership role when it comes to the rule of law? These questions and more will be discussed.

Speakers include:
Patricia Lee Refo, President, American Bar Association

Aslihan Bulut, Acting Law Librarian of Congress

Will A. Gunn, National Law Day Chair

Elizabeth Andersen, World Justice Project

Ashley Quarcoo, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace

Jenny Gesley, Foreign Law Specialist, Law Library of Congress

Temuri Yakobashvili, Former Ambassador of Georgia to the United States
