U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold Gives Heyman Lecture Feb. 2 on Restoring the Rule of Law

U.S. Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin will deliver the 2008-2009 Sam and Ronnie Heyman Lecture on Public Service on Monday, February 2, 2009, at Yale Law School. The lecture is titled “Where Law is King: Restoring the Rule of Law after the Bush Administration” and is free and open to the public. It will be held at 4:30 p.m. in Room 127. A reception will follow in the Alumni Reading Room.

Sen. Feingold, a Democrat, was first elected to the U.S. Senate from Wisconsin in 1992. He has served on the Judiciary, Foreign Relations, Budget, and Intelligence committees.  He previously served in the Wisconsin State Senate for ten years and practiced law in Madison, Wisconsin.

Sen. Feingold holds a B.A. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison; a B.A. from Magdalen College at the University of Oxford, which he attended on a Rhodes Scholarship; and a J.D. from Harvard University.

The Heyman Lecture is made possible through the generosity of Samuel and Ronnie ’72 Heyman, whose gift also supports the Heyman Federal Public Service Fellowship Program at Yale Law School. The fellowships allow recent Yale Law graduates to work closely with high-level leaders in the U.S. government for a year, enabling them to explore careers in public service and to bring creative, entrepreneurial ideas to the federal government.
