CLAYTON LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Jan. 9, 2013

Dear Editor:

 On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to express condolences to the family, colleagues and friends of longtime former Clayton County Probate Judge Eugene E. Lawson on his recent passing.

Judge Lawson’s exemplary career spanned more than four decades, during which he served 10 years as a Clayton County Juvenile Court prosecutor before 20 years as Probate Court judge from 1983 through 2003. He also served the legal profession by teaching at the University of Georgia Continuing Judicial Education Center from 1984 through 2003 and his community as co-founder of the Association of Battered Women of Clayton County, the Rainbow House and Samaritans Together and as founder and board member of the Spivey Foundation at Clayton State University.

All Georgia lawyers and judges can be inspired by Judge Lawson’s dedication and career-long efforts to promote the cause of justice, uphold the rule of law and protect the rights of all citizens. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Robin Frazer Clark,

President,

State Bar of Georgia
