At the the 2023 Corporate Capture of the Legal System Conference at Harvard Law School, Sam Rosen moderated a roundtable conversation among a brilliant group of legal journalists regarding the corporate capture of legal journalism.
Corporate Capture of Legal Media
- Maximillian Alvarez – The Real News
- Josie Duffy Rice – What A Day, Unreformed, the unnamed
- Sam Perri – The [F]law
- Jay Willis – Balls and Strikes
- Sam Rosen – Moderator
The conversation was at times lively, funny, insightful, compelling, depressing, and energizing.
The various conference events centered around the corrupting influence and harmful effects of corporate interests on legal education, the legal profession, legal journalism, and the law more broadly. The conference also spotlighted types of practice and practitioners whose work challenges and counteracts corporate power and holds corporations accountable. The event was intended to join other ongoing efforts to expand the coalition of law students, lawyers, and legal journalists devoted to addressing the problems of excessive corporate power through education, organization, storytelling, and litigation.
