Boyd Guest Speaker and Attorney Kenneth Feinberg Speaks to KNPR’s State of Nevada

Attorney Kenneth Feinberg spoke to KNPR’s State of Nevada while in Las Vegas to deliver the Judge Lloyd D. George Lecture on the Judicial Process at the Boyd School of Law Dec. 4.

The Dec. 10 interview (:31-second mark) titled “The Value of Life: Kenneth Feinberg Talks Victim Compensation,” touches on Feinberg’s distinguished career and experience with overseeing several high-profile and emotionally charged negotiations.

As to how he began his unique legal practice of overseeing victim compensation funds, Feinberg said it was “very, very serendipitous and accidental. Nobody plans a career compensating victims of tragedy.”
