2017 James Otis Lecture

The South Carolina Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates (SC ABOTA) presents the Ninth Annual James Otis Lecture Series in observance of National Constitution Day.

The US District Court Judge Richard M. Gergel will be speaking on "Separation of Powers and the Judges' Role in our Constitutional System."  

SC Court of Appeals Judge Aphrodite Konduros will also speak on separation of powers.

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.
