Justice John Charles Thomas

Respect for the Law

“We are part of this big process that has fundamental authority over large parts of our lives and that it’s an important thing that we do, and we recognize it. When you’re a part of that system and a part of that process, there’s a dignity to it and an honor to it — and there’s an excitement to it.”

—JOHN CHARLES THOMAS ’75,
Retired Virginia Supreme Court justice and Appellate Litigation instructor
