Sarah Buel will present “Achieving Justice for Battered Women Defendants" for the 2010 McGee Lecture on Friday, Feb. 26, at 5 p.m. in the Raynor Library Beaumier Conference Center, 1355 W. Wisconsin Avenue. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Buel, clinical professor of law at the University of Texas at Austin, has worked with battered women and abused children as an advocate and a prosecutor for 32 years. She has founded and directed several legal and advocacy agencies for supporting battered women, and narrated the 1992 Academy Award winning documentary “Defending our Lives.” In 1996, she was profiled by NBC as one of the five most inspiring women in America.
The McGee Lecture Series, hosted annually by the Department of Social and Cultural Sciences at Marquette University, honors the memory of Dr. Joseph McGee, who taught sociology at Marquette for 25 years.
