Dean Emeritus Jon Mills moderates ABA panel featuring Justice Sandra Day O’Connor

Published: September 12th, 2011

Category: News

Retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s visit Sept. 12 isn’t the only recent event she has participated in that had a connection to UF Law. Last month, Dean Emeritus and CGR Director Jon Mills moderated a panel at the American Bar Association’s Annual Meeting in Toronto where O’Connor was a participant. The topic of the discussion was the current crisis in judicial funding. The panelists discussed the problems contributing to insufficient court funding and how to address the issue. Mills stressed the fact that because of underfunding, justice is delayed for many, which equates to justice being denied for many. “There was a headline the other day: ‘Liberty and justice for some,'” Mills said. “That is not a headline we want to see again.” The panel was also comprised of Mary McQueen, president of the National Center for State Courts; David Boies and Theodore B. Olson, co-chairs of the Task Force on Preservation of the Justice System; and Rod Snow, president of the Canadian Bar Association. The recap of the discussion can be found on the ABA website. And the complete discussion is archived in two parts, here and here.
