DC Center represents PLF at Federalist Society's National Lawyers Convention
DC Center staff recently represented PLF at the Federalist Society’s National Lawyers Convention. This convention is the largest annual gathering of conservative and libertarian
lawyers, judges, professors, and law students. Todd Gaziano and I attended lectures
and panel discussions on issues central to PLF’s mission, including “The Role of Congress in Environmental Law,” “How Congress Can Reclaim its Legislative Authority,” and “Overreach in the States.” We also used the convention as an opportunity to develop relationships with allies in the liberty movement, including fellow public interest attorneys and Congressional counsel. Readers interested in viewing audio/video from this event can do so here.
