It was to be a layman’s explanation of historic preservation and what that means if the stadium is transferred to the District of Columbia. Malin looks at the historic context of sports stadiums, with emphasis on the unique history of RFK, and how that might inform us about the future of RFK Stadium in terms of its eligibility for historic preservation and future uses.

During law school, Nick took great interest in real property law, land use law, environmental law, and historic preservation law. Nick hopes that his legal career will continue to be defined by his commitment to public service. The talk will be preceded by a brief membership meeting and followed by a champagne reception. The event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.
