Be Kind to Your Lawyer Day

About International Be Kind to Lawyers Day

When is International Be Kind to Lawyers Day? This holiday is celebrated on the second Tuesday in April

Today is International Be Kind to Lawyers Day. Your lawyer works hard to protect you. He or she is an honest and noble advocate for you. Unfortunately, nowadays the practice of law is not seen by many as a highly respected profession. There are not many careers that rank lower. As a matter of fact, the profession is one of the least respected professions. It seems odd, as it is a very high-paying, white-collar job. Unfortunately, as in any profession, there are always a few, who spoil the reputation of the vast majority of lawyers.

Despite the sometimes low perception, the law profession remains a noble one. That’s where the majority of people who practice law fit in. These are the honorable men and women who are there when you need them. They are the ones who help you to buy and sell homes, prepare your will, protect your interests, defend you in court as needed against lawsuits, go the extra mile to fight for your rights, and provide legal advice on an endless list of topics.

Attorneys were not always the object of negative jokes. In the 1700s, Benjamin Franklin once said “God works wonders now and then; Behold a lawyer, an honest man.”. Abraham Lincoln was a lawyer before becoming President. In his day, it was considered a “noble profession”.  

How to Celebrate in International Be Kind to Lawyers Day

Lawyers are very well compensated for their work. It’s the little things you do to celebrate this day, that is important.

  • If you talk to your attorney today, say thanks for the work they do for you.
  • Send your lawyer a nice card or an email.
  • Buy your attorney a cup of coffee this morning, or a drink tonight at the bar.
  • Take him or her to lunch.
  • Whatever you do, keep it simple.
  • Most importantly today, there is to be no bad lawyer jokes, period.

Today's Quote

“Being a lawyer is not merely a vocation. It is a public trust, and each of us has an obligation to give back to our communities.” – – Janet Reno

History and Origin of International Be Kind to Lawyers Day

This holiday event was started in 2019 by non-lawyer Steve Hughes of St. Louis, MO. This holiday got its beginnings simply because Hughes got tired of hearing negative jokes and derogatory comments about lawyers. So, at least for one day, bad lawyer jokes are taboo.
