Speaking of Schools

The Fourteenth Amendment and Civil Rights


Monday - October 04, 2010


On Constitution Day, September 17th, high school students from around the state assembled at the State House for the Second Annual James Otis Lecture. The Lecture, sponsored by the South Carolina Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), is a program designed to allow schools in the state to comply with the requirements of the recent federal statute creating Constitution Day, one of which is to provide educational programs each year on or about the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution. This year's program, The Fourteenth Amendment and Civil Rights,  featured a number of noteworthy participants, including Senior United States District Judge and ABOTA Honorary Diplomate Matthew J. Perry, Jr. Judge Perry's remarks to the students, recognized as James Otis Scholars, are featured on this week's podcast.
