Who Are The Oligarchs?
Thursday, March 2, 2023 | Room 134, Berkeley Law
The Public Law & Policy Program presents Professor Joshua Kleinfeld of Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law, for a presentation on political theory. Professor Kleinfeld will compare state actors and private institutions as entities subject to majoritarian control and discuss the ramifications of these institutions on individual freedoms.
Joshua Kleinfeld teaches and writes in three areas: legal and political philosophy; legislation and statutory interpretation; and criminal law and procedure. He has also practiced law in Northwestern’s Juvenile Criminal Defense Clinic. He is a full professor with tenure at the Northwestern Pritzker School of the Law and (by courtesy) in Northwestern’s philosophy department. In 2017-18, he was a visiting professor at Harvard and Stanford Law Schools. He is the recipient of the Bator Award, given annually to one American law professor under the age of 40 who has demonstrated “excellence in legal scholarship, a commitment to teaching, a concern for students, and who has made a significant public impact.”
