Edward C. Nichols Jr., JD’70, and his wife, Janice Nichols, will be in attendance at the Nov. 1 event. Introductory remarks will be given by Michael Newton, professor of the practice of law and of political science. Newton is also director for both the International Legal Studies Program as well as the Vanderbilt-in-Venice program.

The Nichols Humanitarian Fund assists Vanderbilt students by paying expenses associated with their planned humanitarian experiences. Students plan their own summer experiences, which take place for a minimum of two weeks in any location Vanderbilt University will sponsor travel. These experiences can be the basis for a student’s Immersion Vanderbilt project.
