Barrett Speaks at SDNY Memorial for Judge Walsh

On May 8, 2014, Professor John Q. Barrett spoke at a special session of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, honoring the life and service of Judge Lawrence E. Walsh (1912-2014).  Judge Walsh, a member of the Southern District bench from 1954-1957, later served as Deputy Attorney General of the United States, as president of the New York State and American Bar Associations, and as Iran/Contra Independent Counsel.  You can read Professor Barrett’s remarks, here.  The other speakers were SDNY Chief Judge Loretta A. Preska, Judge Thomas P. Griesa, Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum, and attorney Guy M. Struve of Davis, Polk & Wardwell, the law firm where Judge Walsh practiced law for decades.
