Mr. Cook is the former chair of Venable’s Labor and Employment practice and the author of Freedom in the Workplace: The Untold Story of Merit Shop Construction’s Crusade Against Compulsory Trade Unionism

The Republican Law Society (RLS) seeks to increase political awareness and activism in the law school community, fostering political education by encouraging political discussion and debate at events throughout the year.
Founded in 1982, the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians dedicated to reforming the current legal order. Committed to the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be, the Society seeks to promote awareness of these principles and to further their application through its activities.
Lunch will be provided. To RSVP or for more information contact Elisabeth Walden at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sebastian Kurian at email@example.com.
