LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Ken Starr, a former federal judge and prosecutor widely known for his role in the investigation of President Bill Clinton, will speak at the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law on March 22 at 1 p.m. in the Allen Courtroom.
Starr will talk about constitutional law and the Supreme Court.
Starr’s appearance at UofL kicks off the William Marshall Bullitt Speaker Series. The series is endowed by Bullitt’s grandson, Lowry Watkins Jr. Bullitt was an 1895 UofL graduate, solicitor general of the United States under President William Howard Taft and a prominent Louisville lawyer.
James Chen, dean of UofL’s law school, said the series will bring in prominent speakers who were an integral part of legal history. “We want to engage our community in discussions about milestones in legal history and their impact on our nation,” Chen said.
Starr recently was named president of Baylor University in Waco, Texas. He also has been a law school dean, professor, judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and a solicitor general of the United States.
