The lawyer who has been representing the family of Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager killed by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, this summer, will speak Tuesday night at Dillard University.

Benjamin Crump will give the annual Revius Ortique Lecture on Law and Society, starting at 6:45 p.m. in Georges Auditorium of the Professional Schools Building.

Before Crump’s speech, Dillard President Walter Kimbrough is scheduled to make a “major announcement” in the Ortique Mock Trial Center related to the opening of the school’s new Center for Law and Public Interest.

Crump has represented family members in high-profile civil rights cases in the past, most recently that of Trayvon Martin, the black teenager killed by George Zimmerman inside a gated Florida subdivision in 2012.
