The Annual Morris Lecture will feature Attorney Charles James. James, a retired Executive Vice President of the Chevron Corp., joined the College of Law as an adjunct faculty member teaching Antitrust.
During a 30-year legal career, Professor James held some of the senior-most positions in American law, including government, private practice and corporate law. At Chevron, he oversaw the law, corporate governance, global security and human resources functions of the corporation, and served on all of the company’s significant executive, operating and policy committees. Before joining Chevron in 2002, Professor James served as Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice in the administration of George W. Bush, and he held the same position in 1992 in the George H.W. Bush administration.
The John P. Morris Memorial Lecture, presented by the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law in collaboration with our Black Law Students Association and the Morris family, honors John Peyton Morris, a faculty member at the College of Law from 1968-1993. Professor Morris was committed to the principles of justice and equal opportunity and worked tirelessly throughout his life to foster diversity.
