Creative Lawyering: Fighting Goliath

Listen now.


On March 31, ACS hosted a panel discussion as a part of the 2020 Student Convention Virtual Series that sought to bring together those using courageous, creative litigation to take on powerful, systemic behemoths whose vast stature, resources, and political clout seems to put them beyond legal liability. Our panelists discussed the strategy, philosophy, and grit needed for legal "Davids" to successfully hold societal "Goliaths" to account.
