James Otis Lecture – September 17th

TEX-ABOTA, the Texas Chapters of the American Board of Trial Advocates, commemorated Constitution Day 2012 with an Inaugural James Otis Lecture in the chambers of the Texas House of Representatives at the State Capitol. It was a tremendous success with students, teachers and TEX-ABOTA members, and we anticipate 2013 being another successful event.

Students from across Texas may be nominated by a teacher, parent, grandparent, administrator or friend to attend the day’s event, to be held on Tuesday, September 17, 2013. That is actually Constitution Day in the United States.

All applications must be in by Friday, August 2, 2013.

Students and those who nominated them will be notified via email.  Students must have their own transporation.

We will meet at the Texas Capitol (1100 Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78701) at 9:15a.m. Students will then take guided tours of the House of Representatives and the Senate Chambers, in three groups.

Author/UT Professor Henry William (H.W.) Brands will be the keynote speaker. A brilliant historian and fabulous storyteller, Dr. Brands will no doubt have the students completely enthralled as he discusses his most recent book, The Man Who Saved the Union: Ulysses Grant in War and Peace.

We will then have lunch at the historic First United Methodist Church just across the street from the Capitol, where Prof. Bands will sign his book for the students.

The group should be adjourned by about 3:00 p.m.

Here is the tentative agenda:

9:30 am: Students’ Arrival and Registration

10:00 am: Tours of the Capitol

11:00 am: Lecture (40-45 minutes)

11:45 am: Q&A Session

12:00 pm: Pictures in House Chambers

12:30 pm: Lunch

1:00 pm: ABOTA Film & Speakers

2:00 pm: Closing / Certificates Presented

3:00 pm: Students released to return home
