 Demand moves Wayne Law’s Julian Bond event to larger venue

Because of overwhelming response, Wayne State University Law School’s sixth Damon J. Keith Biennial Lecture on Thursday, Oct. 23, featuring activist Julian Bond will move to a larger venue.

The event initially was planned for the law school’s Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium. But with more than 400 people registered already, the lecture has been moved to the university’s larger Community Arts Auditorium at 450 Reuther Mall. The larger venue also allows the law school to continue taking registrations for the event.
