Lasallian Forum for Politics and Policy
The Lasallian Forum for Politics and Policy, established in 2010, brings informative speakers from a range of fields—federal, state, and local government; non-profits; law firms and court officials; campaign officials; lobbyists; and interest group activists—onto campus to talk about their work and career trajectory. The Forum aims to both give our students a firsthand account of each speaker’s field of practice and expose them to the multiple career opportunities in political science. Events are open to all majors.
Following are recent speakers:
- Steven Malpezzi, La Salle ’80, University of Wisconsin, Director–Real Estate Department, “Government Takings, Eminent Domain and Kelo vs. New London,” 03/01/2011
