International Conference Keynote: Robert A. Levy


SFL has just confirmed that Robert A. Levy will be the Closing Keynote Speaker for the Second Annual International Students For Liberty Conference. Chairman of the Cato Institute’s board of directors, he joined Cato as senior fellow in constitutional studies in 1997 after 25 years in business. Mr. Levy’s is well known for his recent work in putting together the lawsuit that resulted in the famous U.S. Supreme Court case, D.C. v. Heller, in which the Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms. After his speech, Mr. Levy will be autographing copies of his new book, The Dirty Dozen: How Twelve Supreme Court Cases Radically Expanded Government and Eroded Freedom.

We have also posted the most up to date schedule and a list of speakers for the conference. Check it out and keep coming back for more updates about the conference. After the December round of applications, we have over 130 students from 14 countries
