Trial academy renamed for Cape lawyer

Friday, March 31, 2006

A trial academy in Missouri has been renamed in honor of Cape Girardeau lawyer John Oliver Jr., who died in May 2005 at age 62.

His son, Jack Oliver, praised the name change in a speech Wednesday to the Missouri Organization of Defense Lawyers at the University of Missouri Law School in Columbia.

Jack Oliver said his father was a strong advocate of the trial academy for law-school students, faculty and practicing lawyers.
