History Society Lectures - 19 January

Lecture 1:

The Criminalisation of American Politics: From Nixon to Today

Mr Geoff Shepard

19 January 2017

For five years, author Geoff Shepard was a young lawyer on Nixon’s White House staff, where he ultimately served as deputy to Nixon’s lead Watergate defence lawyer. His new book, The Real Watergate Scandal: The Secret Plot that Brought Nixon Down, documents the series of secret meetings that he has uncovered between judges and Watergate prosecutors or other interested parties. Meetings that totally undermined any concept of the due process guaranteed to all defendants by the Fifth and Sixth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. For more information please see the Hilary Term Innerview (page 37).

The Lecture will start at 6pm in the Parliament Chamber and will be followed by a drinks reception.

Tickets: Members and the Public: £10 (IT Students: Free)
