Cornell Law School Alumni Association presents:
Government Lawyering and the Rule of Law
12:00 - 1:00 PM ET Register now
When your client is the United States of America, or some other governmental entity, what do you do when those entrusted with the power of the people decide to take actions that may be inconsistent with the law or other applicable requirements? Are there times when Government lawyers need to take action to protect the Rule of Law from acts, whether of commission or omission, by those in power? Government lawyers sometimes are confronted with these questions and must decide what is the right thing to do - often with respect to politically sensitive matters. The circumstances and issues can vary greatly, reflecting the many different types of positions held by Government lawyers as well as the diverse applicable laws, rules, and guidelines they are responsible for enforcing. Join Cornell Law School alumni as they examine and discuss their experiences, and how their Cornell Law School training influenced the way they and others have upheld the Rule of Law.
