Workshop on “Common Law Liberalism”

November 11, 2022 @ 9:00 am 4:15 pm

On November 11, the Georgetown Institute for the Study of Markets and Ethics will hold a manuscript workshop on a draft of John Hasnas’s new book, Common Law Liberalism: A Memoir. Steven Wall, Peter Leeson, Ilya Somin, and Mihailis Diamantis along with members of the Institute will provide critical comment on the draft. The author notes that this is a first draft that is quite lengthy and probably needs some tightening and welcomes comment from any and all interested parties.
