Former Independent Counsel Ken Starr to Speak at UH Law Center March 30

Public Invited to Speech, ‘Religious Liberty: Its Future in America’

Ken Starr, independent counsel during the Clinton Administration and current president of Baylor University, will speak on Religious Liberty: Its Future in America at noon, Wednesday, March 30 at the University of Houston Law Center. The event is free and open to the public.

As independent counsel, Starr continued an investigation into Whitewater real estate transactions involving the Clintons and looked into the death of Deputy White House Counsel Vince Foster. He later expanded his inquiries to include possible perjury and obstruction of justice by President Clinton concerning his involvement with intern Monica Lewinsky. That probe resulted in the president's impeachment and eventual acquittal by the Senate.

Starr previously served as judge on the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and as United States Solicitor General. Starr assumed the presidency of Baylor University in February 2010.
