THE MAKERS OF MUSIC, AND THE DREAMERS OF DREAMS

Last night I saw a film called Inception, starring Leonardo DiCaprio as a futuristic con man who breaks into peoples’ minds via their dreams, tricking them into revealing their secrets and forfeiting their own ideas. Working on a freelance basis, he makes his living stealing the intellectual property of various people of importance and then selling it to others. The…

Fordham Law’s Unique Film Forum Boasts a Cast of Stars—and Faces an Uncertain Future

On a Sunday afternoon in October in New York City, a crowd is filing into the McNally Amphitheatre at Fordham University’s law school.

Response to “Slippery Slope”

I’m the “someone” who suggested that constitutionally questionable laws that address primal fears and reactive tendencies (which Mr. Werblowsky inaccurately describes as “morals”), while legally well-intentioned and emotionally intoxicating, have no place in a society that sets (or purports to, at least) its legal principles according to constitutional prescriptions, and then, seeks to carefully mold…

Eli Stone: Eli Makes Junior Partner

Eli Stone: Matters of the Heart

San Francisco lawyer Eli Stone has a brain aneurysm. The malady has left him with an “annoying” side effect: a few times a day, he’s struck with prophet-like visions or wacky daydreams, depending on how Stone feels like classifying them that day.
