Ohio Northern University Pettit College of Law will host the Lawrence Neal Woodworth Memorial Lecture in United States Tax Law and Policy at 5 p.m., May 10, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, Washington, D.C. The lecture takes place annually in connection with the May meeting of the American Bar Association Tax Section.

The topic, "Tax Changes since Woodworth's Time: Implications for Future Tax Reform," will be presented by John L. Buckley. A 1973 graduate of the University of Wisconsin Law School, he joined the Office of the House Legislative Counsel. He served as Chief of Staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation in 1994. Since 1995, Mr. Buckley has been Democratic Chief Tax Counsel for the House Ways and Means Committee. He also serves as adjunct professor at Georgetown Law School.

This lecture recognizes Laurence Neal Woodworth, a distinguished 1940 graduate of the Pettit College of Law, who devoted his professional career to the formulation and implementation of tax law and policy at the highest levels. He served as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Tax Policy and was posthumously awarded the Alexander Hamilton Award, the Treasury Department's highest honor.

The endowed lecture is free and open to the public. To register, call (419) 772-2205. Additional information is available at
