“The War Room”
The War Room is also an informal discussion group that meets via Zoom every Tuesday at 6:00 PM (Eastern). The purpose of the War Room is to exchange ideas and discuss recent developments in law, and members of my scholarly circle include academics, philosophers, and my former students. If you would like to join our war room discussions, please contact me. The War Room is dedicated to the memories of my former colleagues Jorge Cordova and Carlos “Carlitos” del Valle.
