Federalist Society Welcomes Professor Esenberg for Jurisprudence Talk

October 28, 2010

The Federalist Society at Liberty University School of Law welcomes Marquette University School of Law Professor Richard Esenberg, to speak on the topic entitled “The Impoverishment of Legal Discourse: Naked Jurisprudence and Civil Society.” The event takes place today, October 28, at 2:30 P.M. in the law school’s Mountain View Room.

Professor Esenberg teaches Civil Procedure, Wisconsin Supreme Court, and Law and Theology at Marquette University. He is an accomplished practitioner, serving as Vice President and General Counsel of Rite-Hite Holding Corporation in Milwaukee for the past decade.  From 1981 to 1997, Esenberg was an associate and then partner at Foley and Lardner, a national law firm.  Professor Esenberg’s research interests are in law and religion, the regulation and nature of public discourse, state courts, and the Wisconsin constitution.  

The Federalist Society at Liberty University School of Law consists of conservative law students interested in the current state of the judiciary and legal affairs. The Society was founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be.
