Judge Harry Randow to Deliver Cavanaugh Lecture Thursday

Released: 04/11/2011

Harry F. Randow, a three-term judge in the Ninth Judicial District, will deliver a Cavanaugh Lecture sponsored by the Department of Arts, English and Humanities at LSU Alexandria at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Alexandria Museum of Art. The presentation is free and open to the public.

Randow will discuss the infrastructure of the Rapides Parish district court and the Adult Drug Court Program, over which he has presided since 2006.

Randow was first elected in 1998 and twice has been re-elected without opposition. He has presided over criminal, civil and juvenile matters since taking the bench, and he currently has a civil-only docket. A graduate of Loyola Law School, Randow serves as chief judge in the Ninth Judicial District.

Last year Randow headed a task force created by the Louisiana Supreme Court to make recommendations on how to improve access to courts for self-represented parties. He also has served on several judiciary committees, including those of the Judicial College.

The Cavanaugh Lecture Series, named after former LSUA chancellor Robert Cavanaugh, makes available several guest speakers on a variety of topic each academic year.
