The Phoenix chapter of the University of Arizona Alumni Association is launching a new speaker series featuring many of the UA's preeminent faculty members.

A talk by Thomas A. Mauet, the Milton O. Riepe Professor of law and director of trial advocacy at UA James E. Rogers College of Law, will kick off the Wildcat Speaker Series.

Mauet is among this generation's most influential writers in the field of litigation, contributing 36 editions of eight best-selling books to the legacy of litigation training in the United States and abroad.

Mauet's presentation on witness impeachment takes place Thursday, Jan. 14 at 5:30 p.m. at the UA College of Medicine-Phoenix Virginia G. Piper Auditorium.

"It is the intent of the Phoenix chapter to hold the Wildcat Speaker Series once each quarter to feature a prominent faculty member or alumni," said Kevin Wilde, who is coordinating the series for the UA Alumni Association.

The discussions are tailored toward UA Phoenix-area alumni who may be interested in participating in alumni events outside of the athletic arena.

Cost of attendance is $35. Of that amount $23 is tax deductible.

The Phoenix Chapter of the UA Alumni Association will use all proceeds from this event to fund scholarships.
