In Defense of “Free Houses” – Yale Law Journal

House-free (1)The authors of In Defense of “Free Houses” – Yale Law students Megan Wachspress, Jessie Agatstein and Christian Mott have taken a surface view of an extremely deep and dark lake of fraud, criminal behavior and intent.

Wall Street Bank Attorneys Are Sour Grapes Over Glaski

Oh Boo Hoo Morgan Lewis!
