Honoring the Hon. Ural Glanville (JD’87), global public servant

glanville_2015Featured yesterday at CNN: a Georgia Law grad whose public service has spanned the globe.

He’s the Honorable Ural Glanville, who earned his Juris Doctor degree in 1987. Not only is he a long-time Judge on the Superior Court of Fulton County, Georgia, but he’s also served as a top lawyer in the U.S. Army Reserve. (photo credit) CNN’s Octavio Blanco wrote that Judge Glanville

is the first African-American Army Reserve Judge Advocate to be promoted to the rank of General Officer.

His military posts have included: Brigadier General, Chief Judge (IMA) U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals, and Commanding General of the NATO Rule of Law Support Mission/Rule of Law Field Force in Afghanistan. He’s done tours there and in Kuwait, earned a master’s degree in strategic studies from the U.S. Army War College, and served as an adjunct professor  in the United States and in Europe.

The CNN article, Unlikely recruit becomes top legal adviser in the U.S. Army, details these achievements and the long road that Judge Glanville traveled – a road that, we’re honored to note, brought him to Athens for his undergraduate studies in history and his law degree.
