Judge William W. Wilkins to speak at BJU
September 29, 2005

The Honorable William W. Wilkins, Chief Judge, United States Court of Appeals, will speak on the topic “From Behind the Bench: What Judges Really Should Do at Bob Jones University Thursday, September 29, at 7 p.m.

The public is invited to attend the address which will be held in Founder’s Memorial Amphitiorium at the center of BJU’s campus.

Ronald Reagan nominated Judge Wilkins, a Greenville native, to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit Court in 1986, and he has served as chief judge since 2003.  The Fourth Circuit Court reviews cases from district courts in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and Maryland. 

“Though Judge Wilkins was invited and agreed to speak at BJU some time ago, the timeliness of this evening convocation could not be more evident,” said Stephen Jones, President of Bob Jones University.  “The current openings on the Supreme Court and the discussions on both sides of the aisle in Congress about the proper role of the judiciary and the men and women who serve in that capacity make this topic more critical than ever.  We’re pleased to have Judge Wilkins speak to our students and Greenville neighbors.”

Wilkins, a graduate of USC Law School, was elected Solicitor for the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit in 1974.  In 1981 he was appointed United States District Judge for the District of South Carolina, the first federal judge appointed by Reagan, and in 1985 became the first Chair of the United States Sentencing Commission.

There is no charge for admission.
