Trial lawyer John J. Kenney regaled his audience with tales of his life’s work at the Cornell Law School yesterday as part of the Henry K. Korn Lecture Series in Art, Commerce and Ethics of Contemporary Law.
When speaking about the motivation behind his lecture, Kenney stated on the Cornell Law School website, that he would like to instill in his law students the excitement he feels every day when he gets up.
The lecture, titled “Wanted: Dead or Alive, and Other Tales of a Trial Lawyer,” consisted of several exciting experiences from Kenney’s 38 years of work as a litigator in state and federal trials and appeals.
Henry K. Korn ’68, the benefactor of this lecture series, was also present to introduce the lecturer. Korn explained the purpose of this lecture series.
