Collage of panelist and moderator

A Panel Featuring HLS students and alums Catherine Grace Katz (JD 23), Adam Sandel (JD 21), Stobo Sniderman (SJD candidate), Lowry Yankwich (JD 22), moderated by Professor Rebecca Tushnet.


Come meet and hear about the creative process from a cohort of HLS students and alums who have sought to incorporate creative projects into their professional lives. While not centered in the law, all 4 describe their time in law school as part of, not separate from, their creative endeavors. Between them there are 4 non-fiction books (and 2 more forthcoming) covering such varied topics as the history-changing role of 3 statesmen’s daughters at the end of WW2, Indigenous and white Canadian relations, a philosophical guide to the good life, the nature of prejudice, and fitness. There are also 2 podcasts and a blog which range in topic from an ongoing collection of performances and discussions of Bach’s Goldberg Variations, to piano music more generally and the people who play it, and fitness and philosophy.  Professor Tushnet moderates a discussion amongst them about how they started (and finished) projects, stumbling blocks they encountered in that process, and everything in between as they nurtured their sparks into something concrete they have put out in the world.

Lunch will be provided. Registration Required
