4th Circuit Event: From Welcome to Windhoek: a Judge’s Journey

Monday, September 19, 2022

The 4th Circuit Education Committee of the American College of Bankruptcy invite all fellows to join us (virtually) on Monday, September 19, at 7 p.m. Eastern (6 Central, 4 Pacific) for a conversation with Fellow and Campbell Law School Dean J. Rich Leonard about his engaging new book: From Welcome to Windhoek: a Judge's Journey.

The discussion will be moderated by 4th Circuit Education Committee Chair Denise Neary; audience participation is encouraged.

More about the book:

This is the remarkable story of how a boy from rural Welcome, North Carolina grew up to become an innovative judge, global citizen, and go-to guy for court-building in emerging African nations.

Along the way, he organizes the first-ever judicial conference in Tanzania, jogs with children in Lusaka, dances with a python, and has adventures ranging from the harrowing to the hilarious.

In the end, he discovers the distance between Welcome and Windhoek is not as great as he imagined, and that both places now occupy adjoining spaces in his heart.
