February 5, 2014

Event Information:
Date: Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014
Time: 12:15 – 1:15 p.m.
Place: Marquette Law School, Eckstein Hall

New York City Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget Brennan will discuss her office’s efforts to investigate the illegal drug trade in the next “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Thursday, Feb. 13, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. at Marquette Law School’s Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.

A Milwaukee native, Brennan is the first woman to serve as New York City’s special narcotics prosecutor. Her office handles an average of 3,000 indictments a year, conducts investigations into national and international drug trafficking organizations and participates in large-scale police department operations targeting specific areas of New York City.

Brennan was hired in 1983 as an assistant district attorney by iconic then-Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau. Her caseload eventually included murders, robberies and sex crimes. She has been the city’s special narcotics prosecutor since 1998.

Seating is limited; registration is available online. For those who can’t attend in person, all “On the Issues” events are streamed live online at the following website, which also contains a catalog of past guests.

Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is a Distinguished Fellow in Law and Public Policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Through the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, public lectures by leading scholars and topical conferences — all open to the community — the Law School serves as a venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
