MILWAUKEE — Rick Esenberg, president and general counsel of the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, will be the featured guest for an upcoming virtual “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Thursday, Oct. 7.

The discussion will be streamed live beginning at 12:15 p.m. Registration to watch the event live is available online. An archive of the event will be available on the Marquette Law School YouTube channel.

WILL is a policy think tank and litigation center based in Milwaukee. Under Esenberg’s leadership, the center has become increasingly influential in Wisconsin, weighing in on a wide range of issues, from education and regulatory reform to redistricting and mask mandates. This conversation will cover WILL’s origins, its mission, and its role in some of the key policy debates of today.

Esenberg is a frequent litigator in state and federal courts and is a nationally known commentator on constitutional law. He is a Harvard Law School graduate, former member of the Marquette Law School faculty, former litigation partner at Foley and Lardner, and former general counsel of an international manufacturing firm based in Wisconsin.

The virtual “On the Issues” is available to the public.

Through public programming such as the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, Gousha’s “On the Issues” conversations with newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars, conferences on issues of public significance, and the work of its Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education, Marquette Law School serves as the region’s leading venue for civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
