The Center for American and International Law kicked off their yearlong 75th Anniversary celebration with a live virtual event featuring the unique perspectives about the Rule of Law from the Hon. Patrick Higginbotham, senior judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, and Professor Michael Tigar, American criminal defense attorney and human rights activist. T.L. Cubbage, president of The Center for American and International Law and former judicial clerk for Higginbotham, moderated the discussion. Higginbotham and Tigar explored various issues connected to the Rule of Law including: professionalism in the legal vocation, the challenge of representing unpopular clients, and the role of lawyers in civil society.
