box_holland_randy.jpgRandy Holland ’69 recently received the Seventh Annual Dwight D. Opperman Award for Judicial Excellence, which honors one state trial or appellate judge for years of distinguished judicial service. He was the youngest person to serve on the Delaware Supreme Court when he was first appointed at age 39 and is the first Justice in Delaware history to be appointed to a third 12-year term. According to Indiana Chief Justice Randall Shepard, chair of the selection panel, Holland is “an icon among American lawyers and judges and the nation is a more decent place because of his commitment to the cause of justice.” Holland’s leadership roles at the national level include serving as president of the American Inn of Court Foundation from 2000 to 2004, chairing the American Bar Association Committee on Lawyer Regulation, and chairing the AJS Judicial Ethics Advisory Committee. He is the author of numerous appellate decisions that are landmark precedents and has authored or edited seven books, including three related to the Delaware court system.
