Free Special Bulletin! Looking Ahead: The Impact of the 2016 Election on Key Legal Issues

The 2016 presidential election was notable for many reasons, not the least of which is the heightened sense of unpredictability that has been expressed by so many on a range of issues.

we’d like to look toward the future.
