Brookings Mountain West at UNLV welcomes Clifford Winston, Brookings Institution senior fellow, for "First Thing We Do, Let's Deregulate All the Lawyers"


Thursday, April 22, 2010 - 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.


Greenspun Hall Auditorium at UNLV
Free and open to the public


Brookings Institution Senior Fellow Clifford Winston will discuss lawyers as an influential interest group on the formation of public policy and as a recipient of large economic rents. He will argue that deregulating entry into the legal profession will reduce lawyers' rents and their incentive to support inefficient policies.

The Brookings Scholars program - a product of Brookings Mountain West - welcomes leading experts from the Brookings Institution to UNLV each month to lend insight on key regional issues through interaction with campus and community leaders, collaborative research and a free public lecture held in conjunction with each scholar's visit to campus.
