Love Your Lawyer Day!

Updated: Nov 1

Yes, Love Your Lawyer Day is a thing, and it is on November 5!


Seriously, I did not make this up. Though lawyers are community helpers of sorts, they have somehow gotten a bad reputation along the way. Originally a campaign initiated in 2001 by attorney Nader Anise of American Lawyers of Public Image Association, the day was aptly called "No Lawyer Bashing or Jokes for a Day." 10 years later, the novel campaign officially became Love Your Lawyer Day and is celebrated every first Friday in November to show appreciation for all that lawyers do!


So, how does one celebrate Love Your Lawyer Day? Great question! You can avoid telling jokes about lawyers or bashing lawyers for a day. It's quite simple, right. You can leave a positive review on their lawyer page. You can send them a note of thanks. You can also give the lawyer in your life a gift. Pulling from This Is Why I'm Broke, The Verdict Is In: the 41 Best Gifts for Lawyers, lawyers apparently like fun, funny and quirky gifts. Some gift suggestions that I, myself, 😏 would not mind receiving are:
