Many of our nation's political leaders matriculated from America's top law schools, taking the ideas taught in the classroom to the policy-shaping committee rooms of Capitol Hill. Unfortunately, many of those ideas hurt more than they help. From the right to sue anyone over anything to court takeovers of school funding, legal academia has hatched too many ideas that end up conferring more power on the law schools' own graduates rather than promoting freedom and justice.
Join us on November 8 as we host Cato scholar Walter Olson, author of "Schools for Misrule: legal Academia and an Overlawyered America," for a breakfast discussion on this topic. Copies of Olson's book will be available for sale at the event.
Continental breakfast will be served.
