Jim Burns: His Own Man
Tuesday, August 19, 7:30 pm

Jim Burns reflects on his life as a judge, a father, a husband and a cancer survivor. By the time his father, John A. Burns, became the second Governor of the State of Hawaii, Jim was already a lawyer. He carved out a career path: as a judge in Family Court, and later as Associate Judge and Chief Judge in the Intermediate Court of Appeals. "You don't live your father's life, you live your own life, and that's what I've tried to do, without embarrassing him," Jim says.
