Pre-Law Society at Athens State University

Pre-Law Society at Athens State University The ASU Pre-Law Society is a student group for those who wish to practice law. We offer a support structure for students preparing or interested in Law.

The Pre-Law Society, is a student group focused on those who wish to practice law. Our Advisers this year are Dr. Jess Brown and Dr. Jeff Blankenship, both of these men have a lot of experience in the Legal Field, and will work with students to achieve their goals. Traditionally we will have two large scale events in a year. The first event, sometime in the fall semester, will focus on the Law School Admissions process. As many of you doubtlessly know, applying to Law School can be a daunting task. We want to help simplify the process and provide tips for getting into the law school you want. The second event, sometime during the spring semester, will focus on the practice of law and what future lawyers can expect once they get their JD. Additionally, the Pre-Law Society has a limited amount of LSAT prep materials available to members as well as prep classes for those who are interested.

A bad essay might drag an otherwise strong application into the rejection pile, just as a good essay can help a borderline application find a place in the “yes” pile. You need to write something strong. Here’s how.

City of Athens, Alabama (Public Relations)

Whereas, Judge James Edwin Horton served Athens, Limestone County and the State of Alabama as a lawyer, state legislator, and Circuit Court judge, and;

Whereas, in 1933, Judge Horton was living in Athens at the current location of Athens City Hall when he presided over the second trial of Haywood Patterson, one of nine Scottsboro Boys defendants falsely accused of rape by two white women, and;

Whereas, Judge Horton received letters from around the world of both a supportive and threatening nature during and after the trial, maintained the courage to promote fairness in the courtroom, and admonished would-be lynching mobs that he had “absolutely no patience with the mob spirit,” and;

Whereas, Judge Horton meticulously listened to medical testimony and contradictory witness statements and advised the jury, “You are not trying whether or not the defendant is white or black. You are not trying that question; you are trying whether or not this defendant forcibly ravished a woman. You are not trying lawyers, you are not trying state lines; but you are here at home as jurors, a jury of your citizens under oath sitting in the jury box taking the evidence and considering it, leaving out any outside influences,” and;

Whereas, Judge Horton valued justice more than his political career and on June 22, 1933, overturned the jury’s guilty verdict and death sentence of Mr. Patterson, and;

Whereas, Judge Horton lost his re-election bid to the bench in 1934 and retired from politics, and;

Whereas, when the Horton family moved the Maclin-Hobbs-Horton home from Athens to Greenbrier in 1939 they gifted the City of Athens the land at the corner of Hobbs and Marion streets for public use, which is where Athens City Hall is located, and;

Whereas, Judge Horton lived by a phrase often repeated in his family, “Let justice be done though the heavens may fall,”;

Now therefore I, William R. “Ronnie” Marks, Mayor of Athens, do hereby declare June 22 as Judge Horton Day to honor the courageous decision Judge Horton made 83 years ago on this date. I urge our citizens to learn more about Judge Horton’s involvement with the Scottsboro Boys case and to support efforts by the Judge Horton Monument Committee to raise funds for a life size bronze statue of him that will be erected at the Limestone County Courthouse.
