The Inaugural Professor Henry J. Richardson III Lecture


Temple University Beasley School of Law is delighted to announce the Inaugural Professor Henry J. Richardson III Lecture. This lecture, co-sponsored along with Blacks of the American Society of International Law; the Temple Law School Black Law Students? Association; the Temple Law International Law Society; and the Temple International and Comparative Law Journal, is presented in honor of the life work of Professor Henry J. Richardson III, who has for decades pursued racial justice in international law in his scholarship, teaching and mentorship.

We are delighted to welcome Professor Gay McDougall, a globally acclaimed expert on international human rights law who currently serves as an independent expert on the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (her full biography is below), as the speaker for this inaugural lecture. Over the course of their careers, Professor McDougall and Richardson collaborated to further racial justice in international law in several arenas, including through dedicated work on the struggle against apartheid. The event will feature brief opening remarks, including remarks by Professor Richardson, a lecture by Professor McDougall followed by a question-and-answer session, and a reception. We hope you can join us to celebrate Professor Richardson and hear from Professor McDougall!
