Special Joint ASCRS•ASOA Government Relations General Session

Friday, May 6, 2016
5 – 6 p.m.
Room 220-222

Jonathan Turley, JD
Shapiro Chair for Public Interest Law
George Washington University Law School

A Constitutional law scholar, Turley has warned against what he calls the “rise of the fourth branch of government,” or an unprecedented increase in level of power now wielded by the executive branch through regulatory activity. Turley’s talk will explore how this regulatory power affects healthcare and other industries and what he believes should be done to remedy it. Professor Turley has served as counsel in some of the most notable cases in the last two decades, representing members of all three branches of government. Turley has been repeatedly ranked among the top of the nation’s practicing lawyers in various surveys and his articles on legal and policy issues appear regularly in national publications. He is an awarding-winning columnist with USA Today and appears regularly as a legal expert on all of the major television networks, working previously for both NBC and CBS.

Session open to all ASCRS•ASOA attendees. Conference badge required for entry.
