Philip K. Howard to Keynote for 2015 LRANY Annual Meeting
Renowned attorney and author coming to Saratoga
(Albany, NY) – Philip K. Howard, one of America’s most acclaimed advocates for legal reform, will be featured as the keynote speaker for the Lawsuit Reform Alliance of New York’s 2015 Annual Meeting in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 12, 2015.
The best-selling author’s most recent book, The Rule of Nobody (April 2014), has been dubbed “an utterly compelling and persuasive book that, if followed, could change the way America works,” by CNN’s Fareed Zakaria. Howard has also authored numerous other books: The Death of Common Sense (1995), The Collapse of the Common Good (2002), and Life Without Lawyers (2009).
Howard, a New York City resident who writes periodically for the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, and the New York Times, has appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, the News Hour, Today, Good Morning America, Charlie Rose, and many other programs. Howard’s 2010 Ted Talk entitled: Four Ways to Fix a Broken Legal System, has been viewed by hundreds of thousands of people around the world.
In 2002, Howard founded Common Good, a nonpartisan organization dedicated to overhauling America’s lawsuit culture. He has advised numerous political leaders, federal agencies, and states on legal and regulatory reform issues. Howard currently serves as Senior Counsel at the law firm Covington & Burling, LLP.
“Philip K. Howard is America’s preeminent thinker when it comes to legal reform. We could not be happier that he will be addressing our members at our upcoming Annual Meeting,” said Tom Stebbins, LRANY executive director.
Registration for the November 12, 2015 Annual Meeting is coming soon.
