About Justice Randy J. Holland
Prior to his death in 2022, Justice Randy J. Holland was a longstanding supporter of international cultural and legal exchange—with a special fondness for the American-English connection. Firm in his belief that no understanding of the American legal system is complete without a working knowledge of the English legal system, Justice Holland wrote and co-authored several books devoted to that principle. He participated regularly in “cross-pond” legal exchanges, and was one of very few Americans designated as an Honorary Master of the Bench by The Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn, one of the four English Inns of Court.
As president of the American Inns of Court from 2000 to 2004, and in the many years that followed, Holland enthusiastically backed the Pegasus Scholarship program. He wrote countless letters of recommendation, worked to ensure that British barristers and American Pegasus scholars had a premier educational experience, and wholeheartedly supported the program.
