Mesa hosted renowned attorney and art-collector William Lerach on Thursday, November 19, for a lecture on his expansive international collection of indigenous art.

Lerach spoke about his early interest in art, the development of his diverse collection, as well as the business side of connoisseurship.

The William and Michelle Lerach collection featured stone tool-carved pieces from the pre-contact/precolonial periods in Africa and other parts of the world.

Once considered one of the nation’s most powerful attorneys, Lerach has since played an active role as lecturer and writer. He has published numerous articles and op-ed pieces on law, investing, and business, and has been a guest lecturer in law programs across the United States and abroad.
