Thinking of getting some legal help with your small claims suit? Or – if you’re a board member – thinking of getting legal counsel for your association that is more affordable than what you’ve got now?

More about Evan’s video….

Evan is professor of political science at the University of Illinois/Chicago.

Evan’s keynote address set the framework – and the tone -- for the “Democracy Begins at Home” conference.  His speech is also wonderful background for anyone -- lawmaker, policy analyst, journalist, potential buyer/current owner of a CID unit – whose goal is to get oriented to the subject of CIDs. 

You will want to read his analysis of how the courts -- historically -- have judged CID cases that come before them.

The speech is broken into four 15-minute segments.  Topics for each segment are posted alongside each of the four clips, so you can move around to the topics that interest you.   Evan's PowerPoint slides are integrated into the edited version of the speech.   Take a look and let us know what you think.

Do circulate word of these videos to your other chat groups.

The Center obtained a grant to enable us to edit and to post videos online. Let us know what you think about doing more video projects like this for the website.
