CAA DC | Why and How Legal Activists "Sue the Bastards" My Odyssey From Geek to Gigolo to Good Doer

October 7, 2020
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
John F. Banzhaf III, B.S.E.E., J.D., Sc.D. Professor of Public Interest Law George Washington University Law School EdtC-O7WAAU1P0f_1_.jpg In an all-encompassing talk, Professor John Banzhaf 65'LAW will explain the concept of "Legal Activism," how it differs from "Public Interest Law," and provide examples of how it has been used very successfully to address a wide range of public interest concerns (including smoking, sex discrimination, obesity, public health and safety, governmental wrongdoing, and even potty parity). He will share his vision on how it can be used by both lawyers and non-lawyers to cause social change and make traditional (non-legal) research much more effective.
