Richard Epstein to be MI visiting scholar



News worth celebrating from the Manhattan Institute, sponsor of this website, in a press release yesterday:

Richard Epstein

Legal reform is one of the core issues of the Manhattan Institute. To strengthen this core competency, the Institute appointed Richard Epstein as a visiting scholar of the Center for Legal Policy. Epstein is one of the leading voices on legal issues and one of the most cited law professors in the country. Through a series of lectures and symposiums in the fall, he will explore topics ranging from the Supreme Court to securities litigation to health care.

Epstein is the James Parker Hall Distinguished Service Professor of Law at the University of Chicago, and longtime contributor to the CLP blog PointofLaw.com. He will be a visiting professor this fall at New York University. James Copland, director of the Center for Legal Policy said, �Richard Epstein was talking about liability reform long before there was a 'tort reform' movement, and he is one of the leading thinkers in many diverse areas of law. The Manhattan Institute has enjoyed a long-standing collaboration and friendship with Professor Epstein, and we look forward to a richer, more formalized relationship this fall."
