Most Americans, including most lawyers, have not actually read the Mueller Report, gaining their knowledge of President Trump’s alleged misconduct from cable news sources or social media. Bruin Professionals’ Lawyer’s Affinity Group has planned an evening’s program to enhance your knowledge of Mueller’s investigative process and insight into the Report’s findings, both as to “collusion” with the Russians and “obstruction” of justice. Professor Cynthia Lebow, a senior continuing lecturer and highly respected member of the UCLA political science faculty, who teaches courses on executive power and constitutional law, will offer her thoughts on these and other topics, following up on the political fallout of the Mueller hearings and the continuing threat that Russian hacking and election interference presents to our democracy. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion. We hope you will be able to join us for this timely and exciting program.
