Weight:

Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will host legal activist Lawrence Lessig Friday, April 17 at 5 p.m. in the school’s Moot Court Room. Lessig, the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, and director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University, will focus the one-hour lecture on “How Money (in politics) Matters.”

The program, co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Greater Cleveland, is free and open to the public, and will offer attendees one hour of free continuing legal education credit pending approval. Preregistration is not required.

A lawyer and activist, Lessig is well-known for arguing in favor of sensible intellectual property law, updated for the digital age. He is a founding board member of Creative Commons, an organization that builds better copyright practices through principles established by the open-source software community. For his work, Lessig has received numerous awards, including the Free Software Foundation’s Freedom Award, Fastcase 50 Award and being named one of Scientific American’s Top 50 Visionaries.

In recent years, Lessig has shifted his primary focus to American politics and in 2011, founded Rootstrikers, an organization dedicated to changing the influence of money in Congress. In his most recent book, Republic, Lost, Lessig concentrates on how far the United States government has spun off course and how citizens can fight to regain control.

Lessig's talk concludes a week of related events including the Cleveland State Law Review's symposium immediately prior to Lessig's address and the Cleveland-Marshall Law Library’s screening of "Pay 2 Play," a political documentary on campaign financing featuring a cast of over 25 legal, political and media experts including Lessig, on Wednesday, April 15 at 5 p.m.
