International Be Kind To Lawyers Day is celebrated annually on second Tuesday of April since 2017.

Though an unofficial day called National Be Kind to Lawyers day started in 2008, it was officially declared an international day in 2017 by Steve Hughes.

Hughes was an American communication expert who closely worked with the lawyers. He believed that lawyers should have a day to get some appreciation for their responsible behaviour in handling the legal laws and regulations.

He chose to celebrate the holiday on the second Tuesday of April because it falls between April Fool’s Day and Tax Day in the United States. This year, International Be Kind To lawyers Day falls on April 13.

The day focuses on reminding the society the significance of lawyers in our judicial and social system even though society often has many misconceptions about this profession.

This day can be celebrated by showing gratitude to lawyers in the country by sending them cards, flowers or gifts. People can also mark this day by trying to understand their professional struggles and raising awareness about the significance of lawyers in the society.
