Invitation to the William Marshall Bullitt Lecture featuring Ken Starr

On Monday, March 22, 2010, the University of Louisville's Brandeis School of Law will host the inaugural William Marshall Bullitt Lecture. Lowry Watkins Jr. has honored the memory of his grandfather, William Marshall Bullitt, by establishing a lecture series in his name. Bullitt, a Louisville native, earned his bachelor's degree from Princeton in 1894 and his law degree from the University of Louisville in 1895. Bullitt served as Solicitor General for the United States from 1912-13 and was a senior member of his law firm, Bullitt, Dawson & Tarrant.

The inaugural lecture will feature Kenneth Starr who has served as Solicitor General and as a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. One of the country's leading litigators and legal scholars, Mr. Starr currently serves as dean of the Pepperdine University School of Law. He was recently named president of Baylor University.

Please join the law school in welcoming Mr. Starr. The lecture will begin at 1:00 p.m. in the Allen Courtroom. Seating is limited, so reservations are required. To make a reservation, please contact Becky Wenning at becky.wenning@louisville.edu or call 502.852.1230.
