Judge Ken Starr Hosts Two Events at Baylor Law
Members of the McLennan County Bar Association, Waco area residents, Baylor Law students and faculty, as well as students, faculty and staff from across the Baylor campus converged to Baylor Law School’s Kronzer Courtroom, as Baylor University President and Chancellor Kenneth W. Starr recently hosted two compelling events addressing the U.S. Supreme Court, current public policy issues, and the Federalist Papers.
"Supreme Court Issues and Alternative Avocations in the Law," involved a panel discussion featuring Judge Starr, former U.S. Supreme Court correspondent for ABC News, Tim O'Brien, and former CEO and president of the American Insurance Association, Robert Vagley.
Their discussion informed and engaged the audience with discerning and enlightening perspectives on the Supreme Court and on some of the most pressing public policy issues of today.
O'Brien was available after the discussion to sign copies of his book, "Murder at the Supreme Court: Lethal Crimes and Landmark Cases," for a gathering crowd.
There was not an empty seat during Starr’s second event, "Discussing the Federalist Papers with Judge Ken Starr," which took place on Sept. 18, in honor of Constitution Day. Judge Starr presented his lecture on the Federalist Papers for the inaugural John and Marie Chiles Federalist Papers Lecture Series to a packed audience in the Baylor Law Kronzer Courtroom, as well as many additional attendees viewing via live stream in the Law School as well as remotely.
Baylor Law School Dean Brad Toben said John and Marie Chiles, longtime Baylor benefactors, established the lecture series to showcase the importance of the Federalist Papers.
"They hope it will enable each new generation to come to a full and clear appreciation of the wisdom of the principles articulated by the authors of the Federalist Papers," he said.
