Global Justice Forum 2014 a Resounding Success

The 2014 Global Justice Forum was held on October 17, 2014 at Columbia Law School in New York City, presented by Robert L. Lieff and the Richard Paul Richmond Center for Business, Law, and Public Policy at Columbia University.

The theme of the 2014 Global Justice Forum was Income Inequality. The Keynote speakers were Alan B. Krueger, Bendheim Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at Princeton University and former chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, and Kenneth Feinberg, Founder and Managing Partner of Feinberg Rozen, LLP. The event included a special presentation by Diogo de Sant’Ana, Vice-Minister, General-Secretariat of the Presidency of the Republic of Brazil.

Robert Lieff commented on the 2014 Forum:

The 8th Global Justice Forum at Columbia Law School offered a timely and dynamic program on Income Inequality drawing 140 people from 15 countries. Excellent speakers from a wide variety of backgrounds, both academic and professional, proved informative and offered an interactive interplay including panels and the audience. Our lunchtime speaker, Ken Feinberg, presented a compelling explanation of the work he has been pioneering since 9/11, including a variety of intriguing cases such as GM.
