The Austin Owen Lecture was established in honor of the Honorable Austin E. Owen through the generosity of his daughter, Dr. Judith O. Hopkins, W'74, and son-in-law, Dr. Marbry B. Hopkins, R'74. The Honorable Austin E. Owen attended Richmond College from 1946-47 and received his law degree from the University of Richmond School of Law in 1950. During his distinguished career, Judge Owen served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; a partner in Owen, Gray, Rhodes, Betz, Smith and Dickerson; and was appointed Judge of the Second Judicial Circuit of Virginia where he served until his retirement in 1990. Professor Michael J. Bazyler presented this address at the Seventh Annual Austin Owen Lecture on April 12, 1999, at the University of Richmond School of Law.
