The James Otis Lecture
To help S.C. schools meet the Constitution Day requirements, the S.C. Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) hosts the Annual James Otis Lecture series at the S.C. State House in observance of National Constitution Day. By federal law, all schools that receive federal assistance are required to have a program about the Constitution on or around the anniversary date of the signing of the Constitution on September 17, 1787. James Otis was a prominent Boston lawyer in the colonial era credited by John Adams as igniting the spark that led to the Declaration of Independence and the American Revolution. ABOTA nationally developed the James Otis Lecture Series to help schools to comply.
Sir Robert Worchester, a Kansas City native, is also Deputy Chairman of the Magna Carta Trust whose Patron is Her Majesty the Queen. He is a Visiting Professor at both the London School of Economics and King’s College London in the Institute of British Contemporary History.
