Attorney Gene Brooks Hosts American Board of Trial Advocates Event
The American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) and its Southeast Georgia chapter recently held its Teacher’s Law School event and meeting in Hinesville. Our team at Brooks Law Office is excited to be able to say that our founder, Attorney Gene Brooks, was selected to host the event. As a prominent Savannah personal injury lawyer with an extensive history of participating in and hosting professional legal occasions, the opportunity to play an integral role in the ABOTA Southeast Georgia event was a true honor for Mr. Brooks.
Teachers from all around coastal Georgia attended the Teacher’s Law School to learn some of the keynotes of modern day civics and the laws that surround them. Priority topics included comparing state rights to federal rights, LGBTQ rights, and how to start constructive conversations about controversial issues. The entirety of the dissertation was geared in a way that would be particularly useful to teachers who might encounter the topics and potential problems within the classroom.
Guest speakers at the event in Hinesville included:
- Judge John Ellington of the Georgia Court of Appeals
- Judge Timothy Walmsley, Superior Court of the Eastern Judicial District
- Judge Paul Rose, Superior Court of the Atlantic Judicial Circuit
- Mr. Andrew Wright, Professor of Savannah Law School
- Mrs. Lisa Muller of the Georgia Southern University Communications Arts Department
- Rachel Nobels of Liberty County School System.
From all of us at Brooks Law Office, we would like to extend sincere thanks to ABOTA for this opportunity, all of our guest speakers, and, of course, everyone who was able to attend this incredible event. Through the spreading of legal knowledge and how it can be applied to unique and general circumstances, our Savannah law firm hopes to help more people of our communities overcome legal and relevant social challenges.
More About ABOTA
As a nationwide organization of leading lawyers and trial attorneys, the American Board of Trial Advocates is focused on preserving jury trials and upholding individual rights through representation and education. The 7th Amendment right to a jury trial is perpetually in jeopardy due to new legislation and workaround contracts, like forced arbitration. ABOTA uses its one-day law schools for teachers and other similar events to further spread awareness of both the 7th Amendment and why it should be maintained so long as the country stands.
