James E Butler Courtroom Dedication Ceremony at University of Georgia School of Law held on 11/11/2016
The UGA School of Law recently dedicated the James E. Butler Courtroom in the school’s Rusk Hall, honoring three generations of the Butler family: James E. Butler, 1977 alumnus James E. “Jim” Butler Jr. and 2008 alumnus James E. “Jeb” Butler III. Jim Butler has had a large impact on the legal profession both inside and outside the courtroom. Jim Butler also has been a generous donor to the law school, establishing the James E. Butler Scholarship. “Jim Butler’s investment in the School of Law is an investment in the people whom it produces and the values they will reflect as they join him in a noble profession,” Georgia Law Dean Peter B. “Bo” Rutledge said. “Thanks to his generosity, present and future law students will hone their advocacy skills and learn from judges in the courtroom bearing his family’s name—and be reminded of a great courtroom lawyer and the values he represents.”
