The event is private and all seating is spoken for. A live video stream to an overflow room will be available for faculty and staff members, students, alumni and local judges and attorneys.
“We are honored to have Supreme Court Justice Thomas serve as the keynote speaker for the courtroom dedication ceremony,” Dean Cathy Cox said in a statement. “Both Judge Bell and Frank Jones left a lasting mark on the law and within the legal field. I can think of no better way to honor two of our most accomplished alumni, and hope that as students enter the courtroom daily, they will be reminded that these Mercer Law legends have paved the way for them.”
