1.5 hours of CLE credit are pending for this event.

Please join Doug Kendall and David Pippen for a discussion of Citizens United and the key issue addressed in that opinion:  namely, whether corporations have the same rights as individuals, particularly when it comes to influencing electoral politics, moderated by Michael Pitts.  The Constitutional Accountability Center recently published an historical and legal account of that question, entitled A Capitalist Joker: The Strange Origins, Disturbing Past and Uncertain Future of Corporate Personhood in American Law, which is available for download here.
