Nathan Cortez

A Legacy of Leadership

Jessica Dixon Weaver
Associate Professor of Law
“The dilemma that the sandwich generation faces is an economic standoff between support for their children’s future or their parents’ decline. As the caregiving needs of seniors and children synchronize, it is useful to develop theoretical and practical legal solutions that garner public support for the demands that an increasingly larger aging population will have on the private family.”

Co-Director of the Tsai Center for Law, Science and Innovation and Associate Professor of Law

"Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are." - Benjamin Franklin

A Legacy of Leadership

Jeffrey Kahn
Professor of Law
"Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding." - Justice Brandeis, dissenting in Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 479 (1928).
