VENUE CHANGE: “The Rule of Law in a Time of Terror” topic for BYU lecture Jan. 14

David Nevin, adjunct professor of trial practice from the University of Idaho College of Law, will present a Global Awareness Lecture titled “The Rule of Law in a Time of Terror” Wednesday, Jan. 14 at noon in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium on the first level.

A previous release incorrectly listed the location as the Herald R. Clark Building Conference Room.

Nevin has defended criminal cases in Idaho, the Pacific Northwest for more than 25 years. He obtained acquittals in a number of high profile prosecutions that included issues of civil rights and government overreaching, including the 1993 Ruby Ridge case and the recent terrorism prosecution of a Saudi Arabian graduate student, Sami Omar Al-Hussayen.

He was a deputy Ada County Public Defender in Boise, Idaho, for three years before forming his present firm in 1983. After law school, he served as an instructor of law at the University of Toledo College of Law in Toledo, Ohio, and as a law clerk for the Honorable Joseph J. McFadden, Justice of the Idaho Supreme Court.

Nevin received a bachelor’s degree in English from Colorado State University and a law degree from the University of Idaho in 1978.

This lecture will be archived online. For a complete schedule of Kennedy Center events, visit kennedy.byu.edu. For more information, contact Lee Simons at (801) 422-2652 or lee_simons@byu.edu.
