Inaugural Peter J. Henning Lecture

I am pleased to share with you that the inaugural Peter J. Henning Lecture at Wayne State University Law School will be held next Monday, April 3rd, at 6:00 pm.  The speaker is the Honorable Jed S. Rakoff (United States District Court for the Southern District of New York) who knew Peter and valued his work.  See the flyer below.  Come if you are able.

As readers may recall, Peter was a mentor and friend.  His work and my work in insider trading law and practice intersected.  I offered some comments on my relationship with him here on the BLPB shortly after his untimely passing last year.  I also shared some thoughts at the 2022 National Business Law Scholars Conference and wrote a short related tribute to Peter forthcoming in the Wayne Law Review.  I will be at the lecture on Monday. 

I know many of you also have been touched by Peter or his work.  He was a special man who made great contributions in many spheres.  Please note in the flyer below that financial support for the lecture series is being solicited.  I hope that some of you will take advantage of this opportunity to honor Peter and his legacy.
