Class Zoom Meetings

Dear Classmate:

Our next Zoom session will be on Wednesday, April 10, at 12:30 EDT. As mentioned in the letters inviting your participation in the March 20 meeting, our classmate, Peter Hutt, will make a presentation about his law practice, which has specialized in Food and Drug law. Thanks go to Tersh Boasberg for getting Peter to be with us. Jean McKillop, who provides technical support for our class web page, will provide technical support and record this session.

Please join us on April 10 using the link below:

Peter Hutt is a senior counsel in the Washington, DC, law firm of Covington & Burling, where he has been since 1960 for except the four years from 1971 to 1975 when he served as Chief Counsel for the Food and Drug Administration. Since 1994, Peter has taught food and drug law at Harvard Law School. He remains active at both the law firm and the Harvard faculty. He has served on several boards and committees over the years and has received many accolades for his accomplishments. The list of all he has done in his field is too long to include in this letter of invitation; however, you can Google him and be as impressed as I am.

Peter’s talk will be the first in our effort to make our Zoom meetings more interesting for a wider range of classmates and, thus, increase participation in these monthly gatherings. All future meetings will be held on the second Wednesday of the month as is this April meeting. Thus, the May meeting will be on May 9. That meeting will be in the informal format that we’ve used since these Zoom meetings began. The June session will feature another classmate’s presentation. Going forward, the schedule will alternate each month between a formal and an informal session.

I look forward to seeing you on April 10.
