During his time here, Justice Rehnquist taught a class and addressed the university on the changing role of the Supreme Court, calling for a new national appeals court. During more recent years, U.S. Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O’Connor and Antonin Scalia visited FSU Law. Also in 1986, FSU established the Edward Ball Chair in International Law. The chair was one of the first of its type in the Southeast and was endowed with a total of $1 million. Edward Ball played a major role in the development of modern-day Florida. Today, Frederick M. Abbott is the Edward Ball Eminent Scholar Professor of International Law.The first of four historic homes arrived at the law school in 1986. Donated by First District Court of Appeal Judge Ann Booth and her sister, Sara Shaw, the Classical-Revival style home was saved from demolition in the 1960s by the donors' parents, Sarah Payne Cawthon and Rainey Cawthon. Today, the Cawthon House serves as classroom and office space.
