Law in the Public Service: Not Just for Lawyers is an occasional luncheon series presented by the Program in Law and Public Affairs. Please join us for informal presentation and discussion by distinguished lawyers whose career paths have focused on serving the public interest or advocating policy change.

Robert Ashbaugh, former Acting Inspector General, US Department of Justice and consultant to Department of Homeland Security’s Inspector General’s Office, will speak on "Potomac Fever: Not an STD – An Insider’s View of Law and Social Sciences in Government Service."

Bob Ashbaugh writes that his talk will include "the story of how a callow young lad left New Jersey, equivocated between the study of law and social sciences, eventually caught a terminal case of Potomac Fever, stumbled into the most interesting set of jobs he could have imagined, and rose to heights none of his teachers would have dared predict."

RSVP is required if you want lunch. Please RSVP by noon on Wednesday, December 5, 2007.
