An interest in public interest at my alma mater

I am about to get on a plane for a quick trip to Boston to attend part of this Harvard Law School event, "A Celebration of Public Interest."  As might be expected, there is a decidedly elite skew to the event (e.g., there are very few criminal lawyers speaking).  Nevertheless, both the public interest lawyer and law professor in me thought this event was worth checking out.

UPDATE:  An interesting day was concluded with an amazing speech by Bryan Stevenson (HLS '85), who may now be at the very top of my SCOTUS short list.

But isn't a good thing that "few criminal lawyers" are speaking. And why would anyone want to hear what a criminal lawyer had to say anyway.

Is Governor Spitzer still speaking at the event? :)

Do prosecutors really serve the public interest?
