About This Author
Lawrence Lessig is Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, Director of the Edmond J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics, and author of Republic, Lost.
In his latest book, Lawrence Lessig argues that Congress has become so corrupted by moneyed interests and has so undermined the public trust that our very republic is at risk.
