Law professor speaks at two panels at conference in Florida

September 28, 2012

Loyola University New Orleans College of Law professor Mitch Crusto, J.D., participated in two panels at the Southeastern Association of Law Schools 2012 Annual Conference on Amelia Island, Fla., in August.

Crusto’s presentation, “Moral Capitalism: a Constitutional Right to Protection from Economic Exploitation/Predation,” explored the need to use constitutional law to protect the middle class and the under-privileged from predatory financial practices.

Crusto also presented "Unconscious Classism: Entity Equality and Citizens United," which explored the Supreme Court’s elevation of large powerful artificial entities, including corporations and unions, over the voice of the common, living citizen, in the majority decision’s broad application of the First Amendment right to free speech. Some of Crusto’s views on this can be found in his article "Unconscious Classism: Entity Equality for Sole Proprietors," available here.
