FORMER DIRECTOR OF UGA LAW LIBRARY PUBLISHES BOOK ON HISTORY OF GEORGIA COURTS

ATHENS, Ga. - Erwin Surrency, former director of the Alexander Campbell King Law Library at the University of Georgia, has published a book on the history of the Georgia court system. The book, The Creation of a Judicial System: The History of Georgia Courts 1733 to Present, examines the development of state courts starting from the establishment of the Town Court in Savannah. Surrency began the book while preparing his thesis as a law student at UGA.

"[This] is a book about Georgia. The institutional means of dispensing justice is an important part of our history," Surrency said.

The book is published by Gaunt law book publishers of Holmes Beach, Fla., and is available through the publisher and major bookstores.
