The ABOTA Foundation is proud to present the James Otis Lecture Series. Our lecture program about the United States Constitution is designed to engage students and teach about our system of government and their responsibilities as citizens.

Grade Level: 8-12

America has a long and proud history shaped by lawyers and judges who have made lasting contributions to the rule of law, to the process of self-government, and to the preservation of our precious individual liberties guaranteed by the Constitution. Over the years, many Americans have sacrificed their lives or suffered great personal loss to advance the cause of liberty. As part of our program, we acknowledge the great debt we owe to our Founding Fathers and to these patriots.

2017 Featured Speakers:
  • Justice Charles Wiggins of the Washington State Supreme Court
  • Dr. G. Thomas Edwards, The William Kirkman Professor of History Emeritus from Whitman College.

Each student in attendance will be recognized with a certificate denoting that student as a “James Otis Scholar”.  This program will give students from your school a chance to hear from and meet a Supreme Court Justice of our State and to meet and interact with some of the leading civil trial lawyers in Washington.
