Stetson remembers: Former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno made a memorable visit to the law school in 2007
Former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, who died Nov. 7, 2016, made a memorable visit to the Stetson University College of Law campus in 2007.
She served as the William Reece Smith Jr. Distinguished Lecturer at Stetson’s Annual Inns of Court Banquet on Jan. 25, 2007, where invited dignitaries, federal, circuit and county judges, area attorneys, Inn members and Stetson students had a rare opportunity to hear her speak. She also made a special presentation at the Ninth International Wildlife Law Conference and addressed a Stetson student leadership luncheon.
Reno was the 78th attorney general of the United States and the first woman to hold the post. She was the first woman appointed to be a state attorney for Florida. Reno helped win congressional approval of the 1994 crime bill, the biggest crime legislation in U.S. history.
