Professor Richard Painter on Ethics in Government

June 27, 2018
6:00pm - 8:00pm
Dorsey & Whitney, 50 South 6th St Suite 1500, Minneapolis, MN 55402
$20

Richard Painter (AB Harvard, JD Yale) is a widely-recognized expert on corporate, legal, and government ethics. Richard will speak on "Government Ethics in the Age of Trump".

Richard is currently the S. Walter Richey Professor of Corporate Law at the University of Minnesota Law School. From February 2005 to July 2007, he was associate counsel to the president in the White House Counsel’s office, serving as the chief ethics lawyer for the president, White House employees, and senior nominees to Senate-confirmed positions in the executive branch.

He has been active in the Professional Responsibility Section of the American Bar Association. He is a former board member and vice chair of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and a founding board member of Take Back our Republic, a campaign finance reform organization.

Painter’s books include Getting the Government America Deserves: How Ethics Reform Can Make a Difference, Better Bankers, Better Banks: Promoting Good Business Through Contractual Commitment (with Professor Claire Hill), and Taxation only with Representation: The Conservative Conscience and Campaign Finance Reform.

He has written op-eds on government ethics for various publications, including the New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times, and he has been interviewed several times on government ethics and corporate ethics by national news organizations, including appearances on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell (MSNBC), Anderson Cooper 360 (CNN), CNN News, Fox News, National Public Radio’s All Things Considered, and Minnesota Public Radio News.

Approximate schedule:

6:00 - 6:40: Appetizers and refreshments

6:40 - 7:40: Program

7:40 - 8:00: Informal networking

Prof. Painter is currently running for the U.S. Senate seat held by Tina Smith. His remarks will focus on these abiding ethics issues rather than the Senate race. The Harvard Club of Minnesota does not make political endorsements.

Become a TCAN Member

Interested alumni organizations must meet each of the requirements listed below to qualify for membership in TCAN. All new applications are reviewed by the TCAN membership board. To learn more about our association or to request affiliation, please contact us.

01/04

Nationally Ranked

We believe that the overall ranking number is a sufficient surrogate for a measure of quality. Therefore the college or university must have been nationally ranked as a top‐50 college or university, according to U.S. News and World Report, within each of the last three years.

02/04

Located Outside of Minnesota

TCAN was founded as a support group for university alumni organizations from colleges located primarily outside the Midwest. A geographical eligibility criterion ensures that alumni groups with a significant membership base will not dominate TCAN events.

03/04

Undergrad Population of Less than 10,000

We believe that the size of a college's undergraduate program offers a surrogate measure of not only the quality of the school, but also the type of cultural experience that embodies a program of liberal arts education and instills a love of learning.

04/04

Alumni Org. must be a Bona Fide Club

We feel it is important that all member clubs are sanctioned, well‐established, and able to contribute to the Network upon admission. Therefore all organizations seeking membership must typically have at least 10 members and 2 years of operating history.
