Corporate Personhood – Has the Court Gone Too Far?

Attorney Leland Chan

November 18, 2018

Mini Law School: In this next topic of the series we will explore the Supreme Court’s controversial decisions to grant personhood to corporations for purposes of first amendment “free speech” (i.e., spending money on elections per Citizens United) and exercise of religion (per Hobby Lobby).

Throughout U.S. history corporations have fought hard to claim Constitutional rights that are similar to rights accorded to natural persons. Has the Court gone too far? This presentation by Leland Chan (Golden Gate University School of Law) will draw upon the book “We The Corporations” by UCLA law professor Adam Winkler.

After the Forum, please join us for a lunch at 12:30pm. The lunch is complimentary for first-time visitors and students.
