LPE Events

The Future of Worker Power: Labor Organizing and Labor Law at a Crossroads

Oct. 18: Join us as we convene key leaders in labor organizing with academics to ask: why are we seeing an upsurge in organizing now? Panelists will include Sara Nelson (Association of Flight Attendants-CWA), Lorena Lopez (UNITE HERE Local 11), Eric Blanc (Rutgers University), and Charles Du (SEIU 32BJ). Gabriel Winant (University of Chicago) will moderate.

Rewriting the Economy: Race, Gender, and Economy in LPE

Sept. 22: Please join us as Abbye Atkinson, Veena Dubal, and Amy Kapczynski, three LPE scholars in different fields (consumer finance law; labor law; and intellectual property and health law, respectively) discuss different ways to incorporate race and gender into LPE work.

Talha Syed: The Law & Political Economy of Torts

Sept. 16: The prevailing modes of analyzing rights and risks within tort theory and policy have focused on corrective justice (moral philosophy) or social policy (law-and-economics). An LPE approach to tort law offers a fundamentally different view of the subject: as a central arena of social justice. Join us for the next iteration of our LPE 101 series with Professor Talha Syed (UC Berkeley)!

How We Got Founding History So Wrong: From the Taney Court to the Trump Court with Bill Novak

Sept. 2: Professor Bill Novak has just completed a revisionist history of the so-called Lochner era, deconstructing myths of laissez-faire and American anti-statism. Please join us to hear about his early surprising research findings from a historical period we thought we knew so well.
