Student PoliTALK dinner with
Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership, Harvard Law School
January 9, 2014
Morrison Commons, Rockefeller Center
The Rockefeller Center is hosting this student dinner with Prof. Lessig. Seating is limited, so do not hesitate if you want to take advantage of this opportunity.
The student dinner immediately follows Prof. Lessig's public lecture and call to action, "The New Hampshire Rebellion" at 4:30 pm in Rockefeller Room 003.
As the state with the first-in-the-nation presidential primary, New Hampshire holds the key to forcing corruption reform on DC, if its citizens - including Dartmouth students who vote in NH - can be mobilized to act. In this talk, Professor Lessig describes the movement that has that aim — the New Hampshire Rebellion — and its strategy for success.
Lawrence Lessig is the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership at Harvard Law School, director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University, and founder of Rootstrikers, a network of activists leading the fight against government corruption. He has authored numerous books, including Republic, Lost: How Money Corrupts Our Congress—and a Plan to Stop It, Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace, Free Culture, and Remix.
Lessig serves on the Board of Creative Commons, AXA Research Fund and iCommons.org, and on the Advisory Boards of the Sunlight Foundation and the Better Future Project. He is a Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the American Philosophical Association, and has received numerous awards, including the Free Software Foundation's Freedom Award, Fastcase 50 Award and being named one of Scientific American's Top 50 Visionaries.
Lessig holds a BA in economics and a BS in management from the University of Pennsylvania, an MA in philosophy from Cambridge, and a JD from Yale. Prior to rejoining the Harvard faculty, Lessig was a professor at Stanford Law School, where he founded the school’s Center for Internet and Society, and at the University of Chicago. He clerked for Judge Richard Posner on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and Justice Antonin Scalia on the United States Supreme Court.
