IU McKinney launches Bayh lecture

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

This Thursday marks the inaugural Birch Bayh Lecture at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. The annual event, named after former U.S. Senator Birch Bayh, will focus on issues of importance to Bayh regarding the government.

The first lecturer is former Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh, Birch Bayh’s son, who currently practices law in Washington, D.C.

Birch Bayh served in the U.S. Senate from 1962 to 1980, where he authored legislation affecting the individual rights of women, minorities and youth, including Title IX to the Higher Education Act. He is a partner in the Washington, D.C. firm of Venable LLP and is a senior fellow of the C.V. Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience at Washington College in Chestertown, Md.

The lecture begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Wynne Courtroom at McKinney School of Law, 530 W. New York St., Indianapolis. The event is open to the public and one hour of free CLE is available to attorneys who register.
 
The series is made possible through contributions by the Simon Property Group – where Birch Bayh served on the board for 17 years – and friends of the former senator.
