Library Lecture Series

The Leon County Library Lecture Series is another way to engage citizens through a variety of topics, ranging from arts and culture, to science, sports, and history. Our third lecture in the series is sure to engage and inspire:

"The Room Where it Happens: An Insider's View of the Constitution Revision Commission"

Presented by G.C. Murray, Jr., Esq.
Monday, November 27 - 7 p.m.
Leon County LeRoy Collins Main Library
200 West Park Ave.

Once every 20 years, the Constitution Revision Commission convenes to conduct a thorough review and propose amendments to the Florida Constitution. This lecture will discuss the history and importance of the Constitution Revision Commission, the major players, the background noise, and the predictions of what will change in Florida's Constitution. 

G. C. Murray, Jr., Esq. serves as the Florida Justice Association’s Deputy General Counsel and works with the legal, political, and legislative teams. He attended Florida International University, where he graduated cum laude with his Bachelor of Arts in Humanities through the University’s Honors College in 2008. He earned his Juris Doctor from The Florida State University College of Law where he was a Mason Ladd Scholar, Calvin Patterson Civil Rights Scholar, and a distinguished Pro Bono Award winner. 

In 2016, G. C. was the first African-American lawyer to be elected as a Second Judicial Circuit Governor for the Florida Bar Young Lawyer Division and became the youngest lawyer appointed to the Florida Bar’s Code and Rules of Evidence Committee.

All Leon County Library Lecture Series events are free and open to the public.
