New Generation Society of Lawrence (NGSL members only)

Tue., Mar. 26, 2013, 9:30am - 10:30am
Location: KU Continuing Ed, 1515 Saint Andrews Drive

The Honorable John Lungstrum, United States District Judge for the District of Kansas, will speak to us on the role of the Federal Judiciary from his experiences as Judge of the Kansas District.  He served as Chief Judge for the District of Kansas from 2001 to 2008 and has taken Senior Status so we are able to hear some of his thoughts and experiences on the Federal Judiciary.

Judge Lungstrum is a native Kansan, born in Topeka.  He is a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Yale University and a graduate of the University of Kansas School of Law where he was named Order of the Coif.  He served as a lieutenant in the United States Army in Korea for a year following law school and was awarded the Army Commendation Medal.  He was a partner in the law firm of Stevens Brand here in Lawrence and has served as an adjunct faculty member at the Law School from 1973 to 2010.  He was nominated for the Federal Judgeship by President George H.W. Bush in 1991 and served until 2010 when he took Senior Status, thus reducing somewhat his caseload allowing him to do things like talk to New Generation Society.
