Why be kind to lawyers? Because lawyers are the coolest.

Be Kind To Lawyers Day

So out of the universe that is odd holidays, you might have seen today is National Grilled Cheese Day. It’s also Equal Pay Day. And, of importance to many of you, it’s National Be Kind To Lawyers Day!

If you’re looking for a reason to be kind to the lawyers in your circle, look no further than those at The Florida Bar. They’re fast becoming one of my favorite legalers on social media. They do a great job of engaging with their community, providing information, and having a little fun.

And last month, they originated a runaway hit of a hashtag with #LawyersAreTheCoolest. The first tweet came on the morning of March 30, and it’s still going strong.

Their community managers put together a Storify of some tweets from the initial foray, which we post here in honor of both #BeKindToLawyersDay and #LawyersAreTheCoolest.

And in case you’re wondering, according to Brownielocks, my favorite site for checking the niche holiday calendar year round, April 12 is also:
  • D.E.A.R. Day (aka Drop Everything And Read)
  • International Day of Human Space Flight
  • International Day for Street Children
  • National Library Workers Day
  • National Library Day
  • National Licorice Day
  • Walk on Your Wild Side Day
