FREEDOM, LAW AND LITIGATION: A SPIRITUAL BATTLE AT HEART
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 22
Leslie Manookian will walk us through some important questions about freedom. Freedom is a word bandied about but what does it truly mean to be free? While it’s something most of us claim to value and seek, what role do we as individuals play in our freedom? American law in particular, but western law in general, purports to protect our freedoms but is that true and how must our laws be changed to codify enduring freedom? What role does litigation play in ensuring freedom? Why do we even have to have this conversation in the 21st century? Why is the crux of the current struggle over freedom a spiritual battle and what can you do to affect change?
