About the Program
Walter Olson, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, reports that many of today's political leaders who influence what the author considers poor national policy are graduates of the nation's premiere law schools. Mr. Olson relays that lawyers hold approximately 60% of seats in the Senate and 40% in the House of Representatives and argues that poor policy ideas born in law schools have migrated to the status of national policy debates. Walter Olson discusses his book at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C.
Walter Olson is the author of several books, including The Litigation Explosion and The Rule of Lawyers. His writing has appeared in many publications, including Reason, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times. For more information, visit overlawyered.com.
