Attorney Barrett Moore speaks at Lyon Constitution Day lecture

Constitution Day recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. It’s a commemorative day of reflection and recognition.
For this Constitution Day, Lyon College Barrett Moore’s “Recent Developments in Constitutional Law” lecture was held on Friday, Sept. 16, in the Maxfield Room, Edwards Commons, on the Batesville campus at 2300 Highland Rd.
“Constitution Day happens every year, but we have some particularly interesting things to discuss this year,” said Moore.
After a quick overview of the concept of judicial review, Moore plans to discuss the U.S. Supreme Court’s October 2021 term, different cases that have been impacted by Supreme Court decisions, and qualified immunity for state officials.
“Our constitutional republic relies upon the tenuous interpretation of our major governing documents like the United States Constitution,” said Moore.
Moore, a Batesville native, graduated from Hendrix College in 2006 with a degree in English and Politics and received his Juris Doctorate with High Honors from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. Over his career, Moore has clerked for a judge on the Arkansas Court of Appeals and at the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas. He has also worked on roughly 100 appeals in addition to a number of cases filed at the trial level in federal court.
Moore has spent the last 11 years actively practicing law with Batesville attorneys Blair & Stroud, where he has tried a number of jury trials to verdict, a number of bench trials to verdict, and handled many different and interesting legal issues.
