Subject: “What do Lance Armstrong and Karl Rove have in Common?”
From Abscam to Benghazi, every few years, Washington falls victim to scandal derangement syndrome, with obsessive, 24/7 coverage of whatever has captured the imagination. Mr. Luskin will discuss modern Washington scandals and talk about what they have in common, their relationship to the political process, and how the criminal justice does (and does not) manage to handle the challenges they pose to fairness and justice.
Robert Luskin is one of the best-known and most highly-regarded
lawyers in Washington, DC. First in government service and later
in private practice, he has played a leading role in virtually every
high profile US criminal case over the last three decades.
Mr. Luskin has represented senior advisors to both Republican
and Democratic Presidents, cabinet secretaries, federal judges,
and congressmen, as well as leading multi-national corporations.
A graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School, he was a
doctoral candidate in English Literature at Oxford University as a
Rhodes Scholar. Mr. Luskin teaches Global Anti-Corruption at Georgetown University as an Adjunct Professor of Law, and was formerly a Lecturer in Law at the University of Virginia.
