Law Quadrangle (formerly Law Quad Notes)


Extracts from a banquet speech at the 32nd Annual Conference, Sixth Judicial Circuit of the United States, Mackinac Island, Mich., July 2, 1971.

… This conference that brings together so many judges provides a great opportunity for us non-judges. We who are lawyers and teachers and lawyers' wives and judges' wives - we have a great time here, judge-watching. We learn much about how the system works, and why. I think, however, that our observations of judicial conduct off the bench should be considered privileged. You judges should not be taxed with our recollections of your days, and nights, at Grand Hotel.
