Litigating for Liberty: Constitutional Theory in Action
**Please note the date has changed from Nov 21 to Nov 25**
Institute for Justice Senior Attorney Jeff Rowes will address the theory of constitutional limits on government power and how a public-interest lawyer actually devises, and wins, cases that set liberty-promoting precedent.
Jeff Rowes serves as a senior attorney at the Institute for Justice. His practice focuses on private property rights, free speech, and economic liberty. A native of Alberta, Canada, Jeff dropped out of high school at 17, moved to the mountains to teach skiing, backpacked in Asia for six months, and then attended the University of Alberta, after which he lived two years in Japan as a translator. He came to the United States to pursue educational opportunities and fell in love with American principles of liberty. He graduated with honors from Harvard Law School in 2002 where he was extensively involved in law and economics. He also holds a Master’s Degree from the University of Chicago in law and philosophy. Before coming to the Institute, Jeff clerked for Judge Will Garwood of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and Chief Judge Patricia Fawsett of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.
Jeff has published opinion pieces on constitutional law in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today and many other outlets.
When he’s not fighting for his clients’ rights, Jeff hangs out with his wife and baby son, rock climbs and competes in ironman- distance triathlons.
This event is co-hosted with the University of Alberta Centre for Constitutional Studies. There is no charge to attend.
Let’s attend and meet the ILS people and let students know that there is a libertarian meet-up group in town too.
