The Connecticut chapter of the National Lawyers Guild will be sponsoring a forum on September 8, 2007 at Quinnipiac University School of Law entitled “Practicing Law in the Cowboy Republic: Challenges for Progressive Lawyering.”
The keynote speaker is Marjorie Cohn, the president of the NLG. There is also going to be a panel discussion of Connecticut attorneys. Attorney Diane “Cookie” Polan from New Haven will be talking specifically about the impact of the Bush regime on critical areas of criminal law and criminal defense work.
Here is their flyer in pdf format.

[I used to do this from time to time on the old blog, but CT organizations stopped asking me to publicize their legal events. If you'd like to have your event publicized, I'd be glad to. Just keep in mind the kind of blog this is and whether your event fits in to the theme and bias of this blog.]
