The Honorable Judge William H. Burgess, III spoke at the Legal Corner Lecture Series. He provided several written pieces for the audience where he laid the groundwork of his presentation. During the lecture, he also included a slide show for the audience.
His topic “The Courage of Good Manners: Civility’s Vital Role in the Law”, is a very important topic today. With all the acts of incivility and violence, it is of the utmost importance that each of us take action to bring order back into our country. He also addressed the history of our judicial system and how it compares to the British judicial system. Change is good and is part of life, but orderly change is more effective as a society.
