Jo B. Lemann and Neil H. Shah co-wrote a very good summary of the 2023 Corporate Capture of Legal Education Conference. It begins as follows:

Harvard Law School hosted a conference featuring legal scholars, lawyers, and legal journalists who discussed the impact that corporate interests have on legal education and the legal system on Friday and Saturday.

The Systemic Justice Project — an initiative led by HLS professor Jon D. Hanson to educate law students about issues of justice within the legal system — and the project’s offshoot publication, “The [F]law,” organized the two-day conference, titled “Corporate Capture of the Legal System.”
