The Citizen Lawyer

March 10, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

At the time of the American Founding, Thomas Jefferson, among others, viewed lawyers as the class of citizens most suited to lead the American institutions of government, as well as preserve and protect them. Jefferson valued the ideal of the “Citizen Lawyer” who would have a broad liberal education, experiential learning, and be capable of using knowledge of the law to promote the public good.

Today, our nation is once again in need of strong lawyers who can work for the public good, to protect our system of government, preserve the rule of law, and promote the positive reformation of law when needed. Join our panel of “Citizen Lawyers” to learn how lawyers can leverage their roles in public service to positively influence issues of public policy, legislation, and lawmaking.

Opening remarks by Phil Weiser.

  • Peg Perl
