An Intriguing Development

The American Antitrust Institute is moving into antitrust education for judges.  I recall talking with Bert Foer about this project, which I believe to be funded by a cy pres grant, two years or so ago.  It is a tremendous project that is too long in coming.

Frankly, why are we all not doing something like this?  The publicity would make it worth the cost if every one of the runningprofs (and others in academe) put on a yearly three-day seminar on our area of subject-matter expertise.  Presumably we would target local policy-makers and jurists.  I do not propose that it would rival the efforts of AAI or the well-funded efforts of GMU, but it would be a form of grass-roots efforts to improve the quality of decision-making and policy-making.
