Unfortunately, the other organizations in Nashville that invited Lawrence Bader have postponed their events and he can no longer make it into town. Although we Federalists are made of sterner stuff, we're going to postpone this event to ensure that we can maximize both attendance and enjoyment.
If you have already paid for this event, then I can either refund your ticket or credit it toward a future event. Please let me know which you would prefer.

In his time as president & CEO of Beacon, Justin has helped usher in comprehensive tort reform, assisted in the repeal of collective bargaining by government unions, and worked to end Tennessee’s death tax, among many smaller achievements.

LAWSON BADER is president of the Competitive Enterprise Institute. Under Bader’s leadership CEI has expanded its outreach, launching RealClear Radio Hour with Bill Frezza in January 2014. RealClear Radio Hour airs weekly on Bloomberg Radio in Boston and San Francisco, and is syndicated in several markets across the country. Bader has also streamlined CEI’s policy efforts and focused its legal and litigation work to demand government transparency and rein in executive branch overreach. Before joining CEI, Bader served as vice president of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University for 16 years; manager of government relations at SRI International; legislative analyst with Pierson, Semmes and Finley; and a special assistant at the U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs. Bader, a long-time Washington resident, grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and earned degrees from Wheaton College in Illinois and The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. My note: Just for clarification, one does not have to be a member or a lawyer to attend. For attorney's, this has been approved for CLE credit.
