LPE Society at Case Western Reserve University

The Law and Political Economy Society (LPES) at CWRU is an education and advocacy organization concerned with the relationship between legal systems and neoliberal capitalism. LPES believes the free-market ideology embedded in the prevailing legal doctrine unjustly benefits dominant social groups to the detriment of democratic values and the people at large. In an effort to better understand this problematic relationship and how to mitigate its effects, LPES aims to cultivate discussion and build power among all those working to advance a more just society.
