Annual Kastenmeier Lecture 11/30 Features Timely Security/Liberties Dilemmas

Security and civil liberties is the subject of this year's annual lecture scheduled for November 30 at the UW-Madison Law School to honor the long career of former US Rep. Robert Kastenmeier.

The 4:00 p.m. program is free, and open to the public, but reservations are required by Wednesday, November 21. Details and online registration links are here.

Kastenmeier is still going strong; For years, he was a brainy, hard-working Member of Congress, a quiet leader and always a revered figure in Madison politics.

The featured speaker at this year's lecture honoring Kastenmeier and his legacy is Harold Hongju Koh.

He is Dean, and Gerard C. and Bernice Latrobe Smith Professor of International Law, at Yale Law School.

Koh, an author, also served in the U.S. State Department from 1998 to 2001 as Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor.

Additional remarks will be made by US Sen. Russ Feingold (D) and US Rep. Tom Petri, (R).
