From Classroom to Congress

He’s exceeded his five-minute time limit by 30 seconds, but he’s not too worried about it. In fact, he’s pretty relaxed. That may be because, instead of speaking to a committee of the U.S. Congress, he’s addressing a room of colleagues at Richmond Law School. Sachs has arranged a mock hearing to prepare for his congressional testimony, and Professors Dale Cecka, Andy Spalding, and Jim Gibson are standing in for the members of Congress.
