Visiting Indianapolis on Thursday

by Walter Olson on August 6, 2013

I’ll be speaking in Indianapolis on Thursday to the lawyer’s chapter of the Federalist Society, at noon at the Conrad Indianapolis, 50 W. Washington. My topic: “Why Do American Law Schools Tilt Left?” Details here.

I’ve also scheduled some extra time for myself in town that day in case anyone would like to introduce themselves before or after, or even take me out for coffee.

This will be a busy fall season for me as I’m set to give speeches or participate on panels in Baltimore, the University of Michigan, the University of Chicago, Canisius College, Nebraska, Creighton, and Vermont, among others. Often I’ll be speaking on my book Schools for Misrule, on legal academia, but I also give speeches on quite a few other themes including the nanny state and the American way of litigation. If you’d like me to visit your campus or group, drop me a line.

I will have to find a way to sneak into the University of Chicago event…

There are roughly 10 t0 15 so-called elite law schools, the Ivies plus Stanford, Michigan, Duke Chicago and a few others. As is the case with the undergraduate universities they are affiliated with, these schools have effectively excluded conservatives from their faculties, from appearing as speakers or even working as adjuncts. Look at their law reviews; try to find any article supporting the death penalty or reasonable voter ID laws or opposing such liberal shibboleths as affirmative action, reparations or gay marriage. The “ban” on conservative thought, under the guise of political correctness, is very little different than the McCarthyism of the late 1940s except done with a much higher level of sophistication.
