Welcome to the Lives in Law and Policy Speaker Series at the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs. We developed this series to provide opportunities for our students, alumni, and members of the Northeastern community to hear and learn from leading figures in law and policy.
Our speakers discuss their personal and professional paths, offering advice along the way. Past speakers include Distinguished Professor and former Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis, former U.S. Senator Mo Cowan, State Labor Secretary Joanne Goldstein, Political Strategist Michael Goldman, and many others.
Students have appreciated the opportunity to meet with and learn from some of the region and nation’s most important public figures.
“I think the speaker series is a great way for students to hear from people who have successfully navigated careers in law and public policy, and the opportunity to hear about their journeys as well as discuss our own future careers is extremely valuable. Each individual speaker brought a different perspective to the table and I found that to be very interesting and inspiring.”
In the Spring 2018 Speaker Series, we will hear from leading scholars and figures in law and public policy to examine each branch of government in detail: Congress, the President, and the Judiciary. Speakers will explore what the founders had in mind for each branch, and how that corresponds with recent clashes between and within the branches.
We look forward to seeing you!
Director, Minor in Law and Public Policy
