On Wednesday, October 5, Newt Minow spoke at Harvard Law School as the first in the “Great Lawyers” speakers series. Minow’s career has included practice in both small and large law firms, government service and business. The conversation was moderated by Dean Elena Kagan and Professor Martha Minow, his daughter. An archived webcast of the event is now available.

Minow’s talk focused on telecommunications. In 1961, he was appointed as the youngest commissioner ever for the Federal Communications Commission under President Kennedy.
