A lecture on "The 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund: Private Grief and Public Compensation" will be presented by Kenneth Feinberg at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 27, in 16 Robertson Hall.
Feinberg was appointed special master of the fund by the U.S. attorney general in 2001. It was established by the federal government to provide compensation to victims' families for lost wages, pain and suffering, and other monetary damages in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Feinberg developed and promulgated the regulations governing the administration of the fund and administered all aspects of the program.
One of the nation's leading experts in mediation and alternative dispute resolution, he is founder and managing partner of The Feinberg Group. He has served as court-appointed special settlement master in major litigation involving Agent Orange and asbestos. He also was one of the three arbitrators selected to determine the fair market value of the original Zapruder film of the Kennedy assassination and was one of two arbitrators selected to determine the allocation of legal fees in the Holocaust slave labor litigation.
The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and the Program in Law and Public Affairs .
