John Dean, best known as White House counsel to President Richard Nixon and a key witness in the Watergate hearings, will deliver the University of Wisconsin Law School’s 2013 Kastenmeier Lecture at 4 p.m. Friday.
“Crossing the Line: Watergate, the Criminal Law and Ethics,” which will be held on the second floor of the Gordon Dining and Event Center, 770 West Dayton St., Madison, is free and open to the public.
Dean was not involved with the break-in, according to a news release from the university, but intimately involved with the criminal effort to cover it up. He recounted his days in the Nixon White House and the Watergate scandal in two books, “Blind Ambition” (1976) and “Lost Honor” (1982).
