U.S. federal judge donates volumes to MUW legal studies

COLUMBUS, Miss. -- Judge Rhesa Barksdale, federal appeals judge for the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, recently donated the Federal Reporter 3rd (Volumes 500-599) to Mississippi University for Women’s legal studies department.


The volumes include United States Court of Appeals opinions from 2007 to 2010. These opinions serve as precedent for all lower courts, according to Wesley Garrett, director and department chair of the legal studies program at The W.

Garrett said the books will allow students to perform more accurate and current legal research projects and gain practical real world experiences to become successful legal team members.

“Judge Barksdale's donation will definitely facilitate the students' ability to gain valuable research experience and exposure to federal appellate cases.

“Also, it is an enormous honor for the program to receive such a large book donation from a Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals judge. This donation demonstrates the support our legal studies program has from the local and state legal communities,” she added.

Judge Barksdale was appointed by George H.W. Bush in 1989.
