Panelists include the Honorable Kimberly Baird, Commonwealth’s Attorney, Fayette County; the Honorable Kimberly Nell Bunnell, Chief Circuit Judge, Fayette Circuit Court; the Honorable Vincent Riggs, Circuit Court Clerk, Fayette County; the Honorable J. Guthrie True, Criminal Defense Attorney; the Honorable Ron L. Walker Jr., Assistant U.S. Attorney, Eastern District of Kentucky, and Chief of the Criminal Division; and the Honorable William E.

The Lessons in the Law Series was the vision of alumnus Peter Perlman. William E. Johnson, John G. McNeill, Justice Mary C. Noble (Ret.), and Christine L. Stanley, all alumni of the College of Law, came together as an Advisory Board to join in this effort.  The College decided to name the series after Peter Perlman in honor of his hard work to implement this type of public service program for the community.
