Privatizing the Gun Debate

March 18, 2022 • 9:00 AM • Law School 3041

Join us for an all-day conference on the theme Privatizing the Gun Debate. The conference will explore the ways in which private actors are increasingly taking on a major role in the gun debate. It will convene scholars and practitioners for a series of panels to discuss several themes in the movement to regulate guns outside legislative channels, like those using civil lawsuits and business policies. Distinguished panelists include New York State Senator Zellnor Myrie, Ian Ayres, Brannon Denning, Heidi Feldman, Alla Lefkowitz, Jon Lowy, Jody Madeira, Julia Mahoney, Linda Mullenix, Lars Noah, Dru Stevenson, Ilya Somin, and Fred Vars. The keynote address will be delivered by Alejandro Celorio, Legal Adviser to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mexico and is titled, "The Missing Link: Corporate Responsibility in Arms Trafficking."
