On July 8, 2019 the Legal Action Center (LAC) was thrilled to have LAC Board Member Doug Liman host a private screening of Pearson—a spin-off of his hit legal drama Suits—at the SVA Theatre in Chelsea. This is one of the many exclusive screenings that Doug has generously organized to raise funds for LAC’s direct legal services and policy work.
The fabulous evening was attended by LAC Board Members and dedicated supporters, including our very generous sponsors: Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP, Deloitte., and Paul Samuels and Nurit Margulies.
The event featured a cocktail hour and a screening of the first episode of Doug’s new series, Pearson, starring Gina Torres. It was followed by a panel featuring Doug Liman, LAC Director and President Paul N. Samuels, LAC VP of Policy Advocacy Tracie Gardner, and LAC Senior Health Policy Attorney Deborah Reid. Attendees were able to hear the panelists discuss how we carry out policy advocacy at LAC, as well as Doug speak specifically on his experience producingPearson, and his longtime interest in advocacy, law, and politics, which was first sparked by his father and LAC Founding Chairman, Arthur L. Liman.Thank you again to our sponsors—the evening would not have been possible without your steadfast support!
