One of the best things about Stanford Law School is the high quality of the educational and intellectual events we offer. Of course, most of these are here at the law school. But sometimes we take a show on the road, to share with the broader alumni community. And so we’re coming to NYC and putting on an event in which a panel of experts will discuss the implications of the Supreme Court’s controversial and incredibly important decision regarding corporate speech in “Citizens United v. The FEC”. The panel will explore the ruling’s impact on everything from national politics to campaign finance to corporate governance. It will be moderated by Dahlia Lithwick, JD ‘96, and the speakers include one of the nation’s foremost civil liberties lawyers, Burt Neuborne, former Dean Kathleen Sullivan, James Bopp, Jr. (the lawyer who brought the case), and campaign finance expert, Nate Persily, JD ‘98.
The event is being held on May 4, at the Waldorf-Astoria. In addition to learning a lot about what promises to be a major issue for years to come, this will be an excellent opportunity for you to connect or reconnect with others in the New York legal community.
Details of the event are below. I very much hope to see you there.
