The public is invited to attend an event exploring Judge Justice’s legal legacy. The program will begin with comments by UT Law Professor Lucas A. (“Scot”) Powe Jr., a noted legal historian, placing Judge Justice’s work in historical perspective. In addition, four legal experts, each with a professional connection to Judge Justice, will examine several of his major cases, including the social problem at issue, the litigation, and what the litigation achieved.
The public is invited to attend a ceremony dedicating a cenotaph at the Texas State Cemetery in Judge Justice’s honor. UT Law School Dean Larry Sager and the Law School’s William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law will host a reception at the State Cemetery immediately after the ceremony. All ceremony attendees are welcome to attend. Please join the family and friends of Judge Justice in recognizing his significant contributions to Texas history.
