Laura Nader and Ugo Mattei

Plunder: When the Rule of Law Is Illegal

Here is an event that sounds pretty interesting. For those who don't know, Laura Nader is Ralph Nader's sister and one of Berkeley's most popular Professors.

While the concept of the "rule of law" has widespread support, few have considered that it is often upheld to protect the interests of the powerful. Nader and Mattei will discuss how the rule of law has been used to justify the plunder of weaker economies, indigenous technologies and natural resources.

Laura Nader is Professor of Anthropology at UC Berkeley. Ugo Mattei is Professor of International and Comparative Law at Hastings College of Law.
