Law 2050 Class Speaker Schedule

My Law 2050 time the past few weeks has been devoted to getting the Vanderbilt Law School class up and running, thus no blogging. As I mentioned in my post introducing the class, I have been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm invited guest speakers have shown. We have a wonderful speaker schedule planned. I will be blogging about these events as the semester progresses, but with the understanding that that these are busy people with fluid schedules, I wanted to thank all who have agreed to appear in case any have to drop out later due to unforeseen schedule conflicts. So, here’s the schedule as it stands today, and many thanks to all of you for agreeing to share your insights with our students:
