Welcome to Money, Power, Law where I explore the intersection of power and justice; money and accountability; law and equity.


This site digs deeper into the latest cases, breaking news and politics around all things legal - from constitutional law to criminal justice to civil rights - along with hot topics, business, politics and gender equity. MPL is a small effort to share big ideas.
