The Institute for Justice holds its acclaimed Law Student Conference at the George Washington University each summer. Students from the nation’s top law schools take part in this three-day conference on shaping the world through the IJ way of public interest litigation.
The annual conference covers the Institute for Justice’s four litigation pillars: First Amendment rights, school choice, economic liberty and private property rights. These topics are taught alongside others rarely discussed in law school, such as: natural rights theory, public interest litigation tactics, cutting-edge constitutional theories, media skills, and the use of social science research. The faculty combines IJ attorneys and staff members with leading law professors and legal experts including Randy Barnett, Roger Pilon, and Todd Zywicki. The conference’s keynote speaker is always a distinguished jurist, who offers a view of public interest law from the bench. After attending this crash course in public interest law, the IJ Way, participants are able to recognize and seize public interest opportunities in the future.
How do we fit all of this into a weekend? Check out the sample conference agenda.
