Justice Graves invited to teach at Harvard

July 19, 2004

Mississippi Supreme Court Justice James E. Graves Jr. has been invited to teach trial advocacy at Harvard Law School in September.

This is the sixth year Justice Graves has been invited to spend a week as a teaching team member at the Cambridge, Mass. campus. Each fall, about 45 lawyers and judges from across the country visit the campus to conduct the three-week program for third-year law students. They are divided into three teaching teams. Each team provides a week of instruction on all aspects of trying a case, from opening statements to closing arguments.

The Harvard Law School Fall 2004 Trial Advocacy Workshop is scheduled for Sept. 13 - Oct. 1.
