Murray, who started on the show the same year as Downey, will moderate the discussion on Downey’s long-running career in political satire. This event is free, open to the public, and will be held from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Walsh Theatre at Suffolk University.

On Thursday, Harvard Law School will present former Secretary of State James A. Baker III with its 2012 Great Negotiator Award. It recognizes people whose work in negotiation and dispute resolution “have had a significant and lasting impact.”

A program will be held from 1:30-5 p.m. at the Ames Courtroom in Austin Hall at Harvard Law School.
