In a new report titled “If It’s Broke, Fix It: Restoring Federal Government Ethics and Rule of Law,” seven ethics and good-government experts analyze the weaknesses in the federal government’s ethics and rule of law framework and propose solutions to fix the issues, which have come to head in the past four years.

On Tuesday, March 2, at 10:30 a.m., Lawfare and Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution will cohost a webinar to discuss the problems described by the report and the solutions the authors propose. Lawfare’s Benjamin Wittes will sit down with Rep. Suzan DelBene; Amb. Norman Eisen (ret.), senior fellow in Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution; Rep. Mondaire Jones; Richard Painter, S. Walter Richey professor of corporate law at the University of Minnesota Law School; Rep. John Sarbanes and Claudine Schneider, former congresswoman and founder of Republicans for Integrity, to talk about the merits of various approaches to the ethics and rule-of-law issues discussed in the report and analyze the government ethics bills moving through Congress.

Rohini Kurup is a J.D. candidate at the University of Virginia School of Law. Prior to law school, she worked as an associate editor of Lawfare and a research analyst at the Brookings Institution. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Bowdoin College.
