Philip Bobbitt to Deliver Thrower Symposium Keynote


Renowned constitutional law scholar and former presidential adviser, Philip Bobbitt will deliver the 2010 Randolph W. Thrower Symposium keynote lecture on Feb. 11. Bobbitt is the author of The Shield of Achilles and Terror and Consent.

The 2010 Thrower Symposium, hosted by the Emory Law Journal, will feature legal scholars and speakers discussing “The New New Deal: From De-Regulation to Re-Regulation.” The symposium will focus on re-regulation, government expansion and the changing role of the state in the wake of the recent economic crisis and a new administration and Congress.

Faculty members from Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, the University of Texas, the University of Chicago, University of Virginia, Emory Law and New York University will serve on panels discussing the historical legacy of past periods of government expansion, such as the New Deal, the re-regulation of the financial sector and the changing nature of the relationship between the individual and the state.

The Randolph W. Thrower Symposium was founded by the Thrower family and is one of the premier academic events each year at Emory Law. Alumni may earn CLE credit. Learn more
