Hunstein to speak at SPSU in Marietta

Hunstein_CarolSouthern Polytechnic University's Department of Business Administration will present Georgia Supreme Court Chief Justice Carol W. Hunstein as she speaks on the intersection of technology, business and the law.

The program will begin at 6:00 p.m., Thursday, October 11, in the Joe Mack Wilson Student Center Theater at SPSU. 

Chief Justice Hunstein was appointed to the state Supreme Court by Gov. Zell Miller in 1992 and is the second woman in history to serve as a permanent member of the court. She has since been re-elected by voters three times and took office as chief justice on July 1, 2009.
By age 23, this polio survivor was a divorced, single mother who had lost her left leg to cancer.                 

Hunstein was the first woman to serve as president of the Council of Superior Court Judges. She received the Commitment to Equality Award from the State Bar of Georgia Committee on Women and Minorities in the Profession. In 1999, the American Bar Association conferred on her the Margaret Brent Award, its highest honor for women lawyers.

In August, she was honored as “Georgia Woman of the Year” by the Georgia Commission on Women, the Georgia Women’s Institute and the Georgia Woman of the Year Committee, Inc.
