2009 Colin Ruagh Thomas O’Fallon Memorial Lectureship

2009 Colin Ruagh Thomas O’Fallon Memorial Lectureship

The O’Fallon Lecture was established by a generous gift from Henry and Betsy Mayer, named in memory of their nephew, son of law professor James O’Fallon and his wife, artist Ellen Thomas. The subject of this lecture alternates each year between law and art and American culture. Past topics have included philosophy, jurisprudence, American political life, architecture, and art theory and criticism.

The 2008-09 O’Fallon Lecturer, Lawrence Joseph, poet, essayist, critic, and professor of Law at St. John’s University School of Law, spoke on “Being in the Language of Poetry, Being in the Language of Law” on Thursday, April 16 at 7:30 p.m. in 175 Knight Law.
