Brigham Young University’s David M. Kennedy Center will feature Thomas B. Griffith, federal judge in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia circuit, as part of its political affairs lecture series.

Griffith will speak on “Career Reflections: The Judiciary” Thursday, Oct. 6, at 4 p.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building with a question-and-answer session that will conclude at 5:30 p.m.

This series is sponsored by the BYU Political Affairs Society, the Political Science Department, the College of Family, Home, and Social Science and the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies.
