"The Rule Of Nobody: Saving America From Dead Laws And Broken Government" By Philip Howard

May 19, 2014

  Attorney Philip K. Howard is a leading voice for legal reform in the U.S. In 2002, he formed the nonpartisan group Common Good to advocate for an overhaul of American law and government.

Among Common Good's suggestions: specialized health care courts, which would give lower but smarter awards, and a project with the NYC Board of Education and the teachers union to change the disciplinary system in New York public schools.

His new book is The Rule of Nobody: Saving America from Dead Laws and Broken Government.
