“Corporate Capture of the Legal System”

1/27 – 1/28/23 at Harvard Law School.

Registration is closed.

The [F]law and the Systemic Justice Project, in collaboration with several other student organizations at Harvard Law School are organizing a conference on the Corporate Capture of the Legal System to be held on January 27 and 28. The conference will include prominent participants (see list below) all speaking about the corrupting influence and harmful effects of corporate interests on legal education, the legal profession, legal media, and the law more broadly.

It will also include a live taping of the 5-4 Pod podcast in which they will interview best-selling author David Enrich about his recent book, “Servants of the Damned.” The event is free, but space is limited, and registration (by 1/23 at noon).

The conference will also spotlight types of practice and practitioners whose work challenges and counteracts corporate power and holds corporations accountable. The event is 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.

The conference will feature both in-person and virtual speakers.
