OU Law Day Celebration to Feature Higginbotham


Keynote speaker for the University of Oklahoma College of Law's Law Day Celebration April 15 will be A. Leon Higginbotham Jr., chief judge emeritus of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

Higginbotham will speak at the 7 p.m. Law Day dinner in the Oklahoma Memorial Union, 900 Asp Ave. A reception will precede the dinner at 6:30 p.m. The annual awards ceremony also is scheduled with the event.

Higginbotham, who has been called "the quintessential federal appellate judge," was appointed to the Third Circuit panel in 1977.

Higginbotham earned his bachelor's degree at Antioch College and his bachelor of laws degree from Yale University. Following a judicial clerkship with Judge Curtis Bok and a two-year stint in private practice, he began a long public legal career.

He was appointed to the federal bench by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964, and to the Third Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in 1977 by President Jimmy Carter.

Higginbotham is the author of numerous publications in the areas of civil rights, racial discrimination and legal history. In recent years, he has examined the development and history of South African law and civil rights.

Extra-judicial activities have included service on the Committee of U.S. Courts to Consider Standards for Admission to the U.S. Courts, the American Bar Association Commission on Correctional Facilities and Services, and the National Commission on the Causes and Prevention of Violence.
