Speaker Change | Jan 25 Colloquium

Tonight's Business Colloquium lecturer has changed. We received word that Scott Horton from AntiWar Radio is unable to join us due to a personal matter. In his place we welcome Butler Shaffer, the Irwin R. Buchalter Professor of Law at Southwestern University in Los Angeles.

Professor Shaffer's presentation will take place at the originally scheduled time, tonight, January 25, at 5 p.m., Cossentine Hall 100.

Butler Shaffer holds a law degree from the University of Chicago. He is the author of the following books: "Calculated Chaos: Institutional Threats to Peace and Human Survival" ("institutions are the principle means by which conflict is produced and managed in society"), "In Restraint of Trade: The Business Campaign Against Competition, 1918-1938," "Boundaries of Order," and "The Wizards of Ozymandias."

Following graduation from law school, Professor Shaffer was a labor relations consultant to the Midwest Employers Council in Lincoln, Nebraska, and went on to establish a private law practice in Omaha. He subsequently joined the firm of Nelson, Harding, Marchetti, Leonard & Tate, and then began a career in academia at the University of Nebraska College of Business Administration where he taught courses in business and law. Professor Shaffer has been a member of the Southwestern faculty since 1977.
