Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Lessig

They Don't Represent Us: Reclaiming our Democracy

Thursday, October 10 at 7 pm, Bemis Hall 

The Bemis trustees are excited to present a talk by and Q&A with Lawrence Lessig, the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership at Harvard University. An esteemed attorney, activist, intellectual and author, Lessig's current work addresses “institutional corruption” - relationships that while legal weaken public trust in an institution, especially as it affects democracy. In this preview of his soon-to-be-released book, Lessig will make the case that our government does not represent us and that reform is both essential and possible.
