Panel II – The Conservative Plaintiff’s Bar

2024 Texas Young Lawyers Summit

Hotel Crescent Court
400 Crescent Court
Dallas, TX 75201

Share

Description

This panel will discuss the recent rise of what could be described as the “conservative plaintiffs’ bar.” In recent years, the rise of the conservative litigation boutique has been an important development in the practice of law that has born high-profile public law litigation but also more typical private-law plaintiffs’ work. At the same time, we have seen many public-interest law firms and attorneys working in state government file lawsuits challenging laws or regulations as inconsistent with the constitution, statutes, or precedent, often supported (and opposed) by amicus filings from Big Law. The panel will explore this trend of conservatives on the first side of the “v” and where it might be going in the future.

Featuring:

  • Ben Aguiñaga, Solicitor General of Louisiana
  • Jordan Campbell, Founding Partner, Campbell Miller Payne, PLLC
  • Judd Stone, Partner & Founder, Stone Hilton PLLC; Former Solicitor General of Texas
  • Natalie Thompson, Senior Counsel, Alliance Defending Freedom
  • Moderator: Chance Fletcher, Steering Committee, Texas Young Lawyers Chapter

Speakers

4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
