Justice Bill Cunningham Speaks with Law Students

"If I'm not a good Supreme Court justice, blame Bob Lawson. He taught me everything I know." Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Bill Cunningham began his Open Forum with some personal stories of his time at UK Law. Cunningham, a 1969 graduate of the College, reminisced about his nerves when trying a practice case before “Judge” Professor Robert Lawson. He gave a glimpse into the relationships among his fellow justices, stressing the importance of remaining friendly and civil to each other.

Justice Cunningham was visiting the College of Law to kick off the Spring 2013 Judicial Conversation Series, intended to foster interaction between students and members of Kentucky’s highest court. Prior to taking questions from students, he guest lectured in Professor Fortune’s Criminal Procedure class. See the schedule for upcoming dates in the Series.
