NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -- Former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan is speaking at Yale Law School.

Annan will take part in a Jackson Institute town hall meeting at 4:30 p.m. Thursday in Levinson Auditorium of Yale Law School, 127 Wall St. The event is open to the public.

He served two terms as secretary general from 1997 to 2006.

Annan will be interviewed by John Negroponte, senior fellow at the Jackson Institute, a former U.S. deputy secretary of state, first director of the Office of National Intelligence, and former U.S. ambassador to the U.N.

The Jackson Institute for Global Affairs is a centerpiece of Yale's initiative to internationalize its teaching curriculum, attract the most talented students and scholars to Yale from around the world and to deepen the university's engagement abroad.
