Virginia Supreme Court Chief Justice Donald W. Lemons and 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson III are being honored at a Rule of Law Day Awards luncheon sponsored by the Virginia Holocaust Museum and the Virginia Law Foundation.
Justice Lemons is receiving the Civility in the Law Award and Judge Wilkinson is being awarded the Rule of Law Award.
The occasion is an Oct. 25 luncheon at the Virginia Holocaust Museum. In addition to the luncheon, lawyers may participate in a Virginia CLE course entitled “Civility in the Practice of Law” to be held from 10 a.m. until noon the day of the luncheon.
The program honors individuals “whose life and work emulate the highest ideals enshrined in the principals of the Nuremberg Military Tribunal and later the International Court of Justice.” More information on the awards luncheon and the CLE may be found here.
