James Otis Lecture
Live event will begin Friday, September 13, 2019 at 11:00 AM
The South Carolina Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates (SC ABOTA) presents the Tenth Annual James Otis Lecture Series in observance of National Constitution Day. The topic for the 2019 James Otis Lecture is “The Role of Citizens in the Administration of Justice.” Two students from every high school in our state have received invitations to attend and will be recognized as James Otis Scholars.
The James Otis Lecture is the American Board of Trial Advocates’ contribution to our state’s education system whereby they hold a program every year around Constitution Day. For federally funded schools, it is a federal mandate to have a program every year on or around Constitution Day, which is officially September 17.
Past lectures are also segmented for the classroom and archived on Knowitall.org.
