First Pages is a reading program designed to establish a sense of common knowledge and purpose as students move into their first year at Northeastern University. The annual Valerie Gordon Human Rights Lecture celebrates the memory of the late Valerie Gordon ’93, a fierce advocate for human rights in the US and internationally. The lecture brings outstanding lawyers, judges, scholars and advocates who work to advance human rights to deliver a keynote address at the law school. You can learn more about Mr. Stevenson by reading his bio or by listening to his extremely inspiring TED Talk.
