About the Annual Marks Lecture

The Marks Memorial Lectures were established in 1979 to enrich the curriculum of the College of Law by bringing to it the scholarship and learning of eminent persons in various fields of law. The Lectures are held annually and published under the auspices of The University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law.

The College of Law is grateful to the late Judge Jack Marks and his wife, Selma Skora Paul, a 1956 graduate of The University of Arizona College of Law, for their generous support in endowing the lecture series in memory of his father, Isaac Marks.

Judge Jack Marks graduated from Columbia University School of Law in 1935 and practiced law in New York and Arizona. He was appointed Pima County’s first Superior Court Commissioner serving until 1965 when he became a judge. He retired from that position in 1980 having served, with distinction, the State of Arizona. Judge Marks died in 1983.


The University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law is the oldest law school in Arizona and one of the first established in the West. Since 1915, the College has educated many of Arizona’s most distinguished judges and lawyers; its graduates hold positions of leadership in the legal, corporate, and political arenas both in the state and nationwide.

The College is singularly committed to first-rate teaching, research, and service to the public and legal profession. Our size – a total student body of about 500 – fosters close interaction and a high level of intellectual engagement among students and faculty.

Tucson is located in the beautiful Sonoran desert, near the border of two nations, and in a state that embraces tribal lands, with the attendant complexities of multiple cultures and sovereignities. Arizona is a stimulating, unique setting in which to work and to live.
