Description

Taking On State Sponsors of Terrorism: A New Frontier in International Tort Litigation featuring Andrew C. Hall, William & Patricia Kleh Visiting Professor in International Law

Please join us for the inaugural Kleh Lecture, featuring Andrew C. Hall—a Holocaust survivor, celebrated leader in the fight against state-sponsored terrorism, and founder of Hall, Lamb and Hall in Miami. Hall’s impressive resume of high-profile cases includes the defense of John Ehrlichman, Nixon’s former senior adviser for domestic affairs, in the Watergate trial, as well as the recovery of a multi-million-dollar settlement from the Sudanese government for the families of U.S. sailors who died in the USS Cole attack. An expert litigator, Hall has successfully sued Iraq and Libya, as well, and won judgment on behalf of a Cuban expatriate for damages stemming from the Castro regime—including the forced suicide of the plaintiff’s father. Additionally, his casework involves complex commercial litigation, professional negligence, securities litigation and arbitration, family law, personal injury, and wrongful death.

This lecture is made possible through the generosity of Patricia and William H. Kleh (’71), who established the William & Patricia Kleh Visiting Professorship in International Law in February 2011.

All—including faculty, students and the general public—are welcome to attend. For event related questions and to RSVP for this lecture, please contact BU Law's Events & PR Manager, Elizabeth Aggott, at eaa@bu.edu.
