Why has government been instituted at all? Because the passions of men will not conform to the dictates of reason and justice without constraint.
-- Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers, No. 15 December 1, 1787


People sometimes attribute my success to my genius; all the genius I know anything about is hard work.
--Alexander Hamilton

 

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about the law practice of Alexander Hamilton, founding father extraordinaire and practicing lawyer in the early days of American jurisprudence.  Recollections of his legal cases, letters, publications, and stories (as well as their historical context) are provided by John Lupton, Executive Director at the Supreme Court Historic Preservation Commission. The program concludes with our panel presenters discussing how these issues would be addressed in the 21st century practice and how some of Hamilton’s characteristics are applicable to a successful practitioner today. Topics include:

  • Competency
