A. Leon Higginbotham, Jr.'s profound legacy as a jurist, advocate, scholar, and public servant will endure as long we collectively pursue freedom and equality under law. The late Judge's lasting effect on the law is as much a product of his personal influence on the generation of young lawyers, law clerks, and undergraduate students he taught, mentored, and inspired, as it is of the marvelously crafted body of judicial opinions he left behind. To the very end, Judge Higginbotham utilized his brilliant legal mind, rhetorical gifts, and indefatigable spirit in total commitment to forging a socially just society, offering a better future for those generations who would follow him.
