TePoel Lecture Friday

Richard De Mulder, Ph.D., professor of computers and law at Erasmus University in Rotterdam, Netherlands, will present Creighton University’s annual TePoel Lecture at 4 p.m. Friday, April 3, at the Creighton University School of Law, room 124. The lecture titled, “The Eyewitmem Project, Measuring the Impossible,” is free to the public. A reception will follow the lecture.

De Mulder is a member of various research institutes and serves on a legal tools expert committee of the International Criminal Court in The Hague. His current research projects include “Eyewitmem,” an interdisciplinary initiative financed by the European Union to produce a means for testing the reliability of eyewitness statements. His lecture will address the aims and progress of the “Eyewitmem” project (www.eyewitmem.eur).

The TePoel Lecture Series is named in honor of Louis TePoel, teacher, scholar and academic administrator, who served on the Creighton School of Law faculty 1907 – 1947, and as dean 1920 - 1947. The Creighton University School of Law sponsors the lecture.

Creighton University is a Jesuit, Catholic university bridging health, law, business and the arts and sciences for a more just world.
