Philip K. Howard to Keynote for 2015 LRANY Annual Meeting
Renowned attorney and author coming to Saratoga
We are very excited to announce Philip K. Howard, one of America’s most acclaimed advocates for legal reform, will be featured as the keynote speaker at 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), TheCollapse 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.
