At the the 2023 Corporate Capture of the Legal System Conference at Harvard Law School, Suzanna Bobadilla moderated a roundtable conversation, “Challenging Corporate Power by Agitating, Educating, and Organizing,” among a group of brilliant and innovative lawyers and organizers who discuss how and why they do what they do.
The sort of work they’re doing to challenge corporate power and its influence over the legal system has never been more important.
Challenging Corporate Power
Here’s a list of the panelists and their organizations:
- Sparky Abraham – Debt Collective & Jubilee Legal
- Molly Coleman – People’s Parity Project
- Charity Ryerson – Corporate Accountability Lab
- Bianca Tylek – Worth Rises
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.
