        LAW, LITERATURE AND MURDER
        IN THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST

        THURSDAY 16TH DECEMBER ~ 6.30PM
        FOLLOWED BY A RECEPTION

        A lecture in memory of RAYMOND WESTBROOK given by PROFESSOR PIOTR
        MICHALOWSKI

        Professor Piotr Michalowski's work on a cuneiform document recording a
        murder trail, c.1800BCE was also to have a legal commentary by his old
        friend, colleague and New London Synagogue member Professor Raymond
        Westbrook, the leading authority on ancient Near Eastern law. Prof.
        Westbrook died one year ago and this lecture celebrates his memory with
        an analysis of a text that was dear to his heart and mind, fulfilling an
        old promise. The text is short, but its many twists and turns reveal a
        fascinating insight into an aristocratic Babylonian family.

        British born, Piotr Michalowski grew up in Poland and received his
        doctorate from Yale University where he and Raymond Westbrook were
        students together. He is the George G. Cameron Professor of Ancient Near
        Eastern Civilizations at the University of Michigan specializing in the
        Sumerian and Babylonian literature, languages, history, economics and
        poetics. He is also is the editor of the Journal of Cuneiform Studies
        and President of the International Association of Assyriologists.

        The lecture takes place at the New London Synagogue,
        33 Abbey Road London NW8 OAT
