The Honorable Randy J. Holland
Supreme Court of Delaware

Dear Randy,

Please accept my congratulations for the honor conferred on all the judiciary by the establishment of Randy J. Holland American Inn of Court.

My recollections of talking with Warren Burger and Sherman Christensen about starting the American Inns of Court are still vivid, because they were so excited. My own first reaction was that the idea was an excellent one – but this understates it. It is now clear that it was a great, remarkable idea. In our own times the Inns of Court are a most singular contribution to the idea and the reality of professionalism and excellence in the law. And your career exemplifies these same precepts.

The two of us might look forward to the time when the Randy J. Holland American Inn of Court and the Anthony M. Kennedy Inn compete for the first place in the contest for best program of the year. Perhaps we will settle for a tie.

With repeated congratulations, with assurances of my continued admiration, and with thanks for your friendship, I remain,

Yours sincerely,
