| ||Figure and Form: African Ceramics from the Keith Achepohl Collection (Multi-Day Event)
Over the centuries, African potters have created unique and innovative ceramic vessels for domestic and ritual use. Made by hand and often fired in the open, these vessels embody an immediacy of form and a deceptive simplicity that reflect a deep understanding of material, process, and embellishment. Organized by director John Olbrantz, the exhibition will feature 17 ceramic vessels from the Keith Achepohl collection of Eugene, Oregon.

Join us for the 2017 Peterson Lecture at Willamette Law. A reception for the event will be from 5 to 5:30 p.m., and the lecture will go from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Richard Epstein, renowned legal scholar and professor at New York
University School of Law, will give the lecture, titled
"Our Implied Constitution." Epstein will share his views on whether it
is possible, and if so, how, to isolate the original public meaning of
key terms in the Constitution. He will cover topics including the power
of the police, the doctrine of unconstitutional conditions, and the
distribution of powers in the conduct of foreign affairs.
Epstein is considered to be one of the most influential thinkers in
legal academia and is well known for his articles on various legal and
interdisciplinary subjects. He joined the faculty at NYU School of Law
in 2010, and in 2013, became the founding director of the Classical
Liberal Institute there. He has served as the Peter and Kirstin Bedford
Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution since 2000.
The lecture is made possible by the Ken and Claudia Peterson
Foundation. The Petersons endowed the lecture series in order to give
attorneys, judges and students access to cutting-edge legal scholars.
