news | October 16, 2015
In October, firm founder Joe Hollingsworth gave the keynote address to the reunion weekend gathering of the Barristers’ Council at Georgetown Law. The Barristers’ Council, consisting of the law school’s mock trial, moot court, and alternative dispute resolution teams, competes worldwide and is nationally ranked. Joe, a 1974 Georgetown Law graduate, spoke to current students and alumni about lessons learned in forty-one years of trial and appellate advocacy. He related stories about Supreme Court justices before whom he has argued and past and present Washington, DC “super lawyers” with and against whom he participated in litigation throughout his career. The speech was followed by an alumni cocktail reception on campus.
