The Institute for Justice and Other Opportunities to Litigate for Liberty

October 29, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Come learn from one of our highly esteemed and deeply knowledgeable Wasserstein Fellows, Renée Flaherty ’11, Attorney with The Institute for Justice, as she discusses her work on economic, property and First Amendment rights at the Institute for Justice and similar opportunities to litigate for liberty. Co-sponsored by the HLS Federalist Society and the HLS GOP. A non-pizza lunch will be provided. 

Renée Flaherty is an attorney with the Institute for Justice. She joined the Institute in 2013 and litigates cases to secure property rights, free speech and economic liberty in both federal and state courts. Renée successfully represented families in defense of North Carolina’s Opportunity Scholarship Program, which was upheld by the North Carolina Supreme Court in July 2015. Her work has also resulted in the return of thousands of dollars seized for civil forfeiture to innocent property owners and a court victory for ridesharing drivers in Chicago. Renée’s views and opinions have been published in USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post and The Atlantic.

Prior to joining the Institute for Justice, Renée worked in private practice as a tax controversy associate at the Washington, D.C. office of Bingham McCutchen, LLP. She received her law degree from Harvard Law School in 2011. Renée also graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and a Bachelor of Business Administration.
