The U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform will hold our 15th Annual Legal Reform Summit: The Enforcement “Collidescope”: The New Litigation Paradigm on October 21, 2014. Our preeminent comprehensive legal reform symposium will explore the increase in government overreach and serial enforcement, the outsourcing of public powers to private parties, and follow-on litigation. This year’s Summit will feature a keynote address from The Honorable Chris Christie, Governor of New Jersey, and remarks by Thomas J. Donohue, President and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Each year, the Legal Reform Summit gathers business and industry leaders, government officials and the media to explore relevant legal issues and discuss the current state of legal reform and its importance to the greater business community and national economy.
