Tulane Law School Dean David Meyer and Jim Letten, assistant dean for experiential learning, are joining new U.S. Attorney Kenneth Polite Jr. for a dinner program Oct. 23 with Tulane alumni.
The event is the latest offering of the Tulane Alumni Lifelong Learning Program. It will provide attendees an opportunity to hear an update on law school developments, particularly in boosting students’ experiential learning opportunities, as well as about Polite’s initiatives during his first year as U.S. Attorney.
Polite, nominated by President Barack Obama in June 2013, was unanimously approved by the Senate less than three months later. Polite succeeded Letten, who served as U.S. Attorney from 2001-12, under both Presidents George W. Bush and Obama. (An interim U.S. Attorney filled in between Letten’s tenure and Polite’s confirmation.)
Polite, a former shareholder at Liskow & Lewis, supervises an office of 55 Assistant U.S. Attorneys handling federal civil and criminal cases for 13 parishes in the Eastern District of Louisiana.
More on the event, scheduled for 6 p.m. at Café Reconcile, is available here.
