Francis J. Larkin: A Legend in His Own Time Honors the work and contributions of long-time chair of The Judges' Journal editorial board Francis J. Larkin, upon his retirement from the board Francis J. LarkinFrancis J. Larkin is one of those rare individuals who truly became a legend in his own time: an effective law professor, a distinguished jurist, a leader of the ABA Judicial Division and the American Bar Association, a pioneering law school dean, and a prolific legal writer.In addition, he served in various editorial capacities not the least of which was as chair and board member of The Judges' Journal.His work at the helm of the magazine for over two decades helped make The Judges' Journal one of the finest American Bar Association publications.Judge Larkin received his bachelor's degree from Holy Cross College and his law degree from Georgetown University Law Center.After completing a Master of Laws degree at Georgetown, he joined its faculty but then moved to Boston College Law School, serving as associate dean and professor of law for ten years.In 1970, he became special justice of the Newton District Court in Newton, Massachusetts, and, later, became presiding justice of the Milford District Court.For two decades he was a member of the appellate division of the Massachusetts District Courts, for which he authored more than 200 appellate opinions.As if his career was not already full, he took on the position of dean and, later, chancellor of Southern New England School of Law in Massachusetts.Through the years, he has tirelessly served the ABA in many capacities, including as chair of the National Conference of Special Court Judges and Judicial Division delegate to the ABA House of Delegates where he skillfully and thoughtfully represented the members' interests for many years.He headed the committee charged with coordinating "Law Day USA" events throughout the country.In addition, he also served as chairman of the Committee on Public Understanding and the Law, a member of the Joint Law-Medical Consortium on Substance Abuse, and a member of the National Coalition of Justice studying the nation's judicial systems.Judge Larkin served the editorial board of The Judges' Journal for a total of twenty-five years, retiring in 2000.Under his leadership, the publication grew significantly and received several notable awards.The look and content of the magazine evolved from a miscellaneous combination of articles and reports from division conference chairs to a more substantive journal.Many issues began to focus on specific themes that covered topics such as the use of genetics in the courtroom, jury reform, judicial independence, civil justice reform, and the effect of natural disasters on court systems, to name a few.Larkin is a prolific writer.His own contributions to The Judges' Journal have been many and varied and include articles and editorials on issues very near and dear to his heart.Of note are his frontispiece editorials supporting the work of the Legal Services Corporation ("The Legal Services Corporation Must be Saved," Winter 1995), the State Justice Institute ("The State Justice Institute: An Investment in Justice That Must Continue," Spring 1992, and "Why the State Justice Institute Must be Funded," Summer 1995), and the National Judicial College ("What Judges Need to Learn," Fall 1988).His commitment to judicial independence and the importance of the Bill of Rights are reflected in his articles "The Variousness, Virulence, and Variety of Threats to Judicial Independence" (Winter 1997) and "Conflict, Consensus, and Compromise: Reflections on the Bill of Rights" (Fall 1991).Outside of the legal community, Larkin has enjoyed a rich life, as well.He completed thirty-two years of service with the United States Army Judge Advocate General's Corp., attaining the rank of full colonel.He has served for more than twenty years as a member of the board of directors of Catholic Charities of the Boston Archdiocese, and is founding director of the Retirement Fund for Religious of the Worcester Massachusetts Diocese.He and his wife, Virginia, have raised five children and are now proud grandparents.Judge, colonel, professor, dean, chancellor, editor, author, husband, father, and grandfather: Francis J. Larkin, we thank you for your significant contributions to the American Bar Association and The Judges' Journal, in particular, and salute your dedicated service to the community, the judiciary, legal academia, and our entire legal profession.

At the meeting, the center also recognized longtime trustee and judge Francis Larkin as the center`s fourth trustee emeritus.
Larkin said the expansion building should be approached as a metaphor. "These buildings have a power to express, and to a certain degree shape, the ideals of an institution," he said.
