A Conversation with Eric Holder

Register now to attend The Harkin Institute’s free public event, A Conversation with Eric Holder, featuring former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, Jr., on Tuesday, February 12, 2019!

Holder will sit down with Marsha Ternus, former Chief Justice of the Iowa Supreme Court, for a discussion on redistricting, voting rights, and the national law enforcement apparatus.

Holder served as Attorney General of the United States from February 2009 to April 2015 under President Barack Obama. Holder was the third-longest serving Attorney General in U.S. history and the first African American to hold that office. Presently, Holder is a partner at Covington & Burling LLP, where he advises clients on complex investigations and litigation matters, including those that are international in scope and involve significant regulatory enforcement issues and substantial reputational concerns. Additionally, Holder serves as chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, an organization focused on redistricting reform.

Ternus serves as chairwoman of The Harkin Institute National Advisory Council and is an alumna of the Drake Law School.

This event is free, but registration is required.
