Please join us for the second annual James N. Esdaile, Jr. Lecture featuring The Honorable Denise J. Casper, U. S. District Court, District of Massachusetts. Judge Casper has been serving as a district judge on the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts since January 2011. Immediately prior to her appointment to the bench, she served as the Deputy District Attorney for Middlesex County. Prior to serving as a Deputy District Attorney, Judge Casper served for six years as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Criminal Division of the Office of the United States Attorney in Boston. Ultimately, she became Deputy Chief of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Unit. Before becoming a prosecutor, Judge Casper clerked for Justices of the Massachusetts Appeals Court and was an attorney in the Litigation Department of what is now Bingham McCutchen LLP. Judge Casper is a graduate of Wesleyan University (1990) and Harvard Law School (1994). She has been an active member of the Boston Bar Association and has served as an officer of the Association and a member of its governing council. She has also served on the boards of the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston, the Executive Board of the Women’s Bar Foundation and the Massachusetts Black Women Attorneys. In addition, Judge Casper has taught Legal Writing and Advocacy at the Boston University School of Law. The distinguished James N. Esdaile Lecture has been made possible by the generosity of Esdaile, Barrett, Jacobs & Mone, which created it to honor James N. Esdaile, Jr. (‘70), a lifelong partner in the Boston-based law firm, former managing editor of the Boston University Law Review, and BU Law lecturer, university trustee and alumni association president. The lecture will take place on Thursday, April 17 at 4:00 p.m. in Barristers Hall with a reception immediately following the lecture. Registration is required, please email to RSVP.
