William “Chip” Mellor, president and general counsel of the Institute for Justice, will discuss how 12 U.S. Supreme Court cases radically expanded government and eroded freedom at a Legal Forum Lunch on Wednesday, September 10 at Petterino’s restaurant, 150 North Dearborn, Chicago.

The forum, which begins with registration at 11:30 a.m., is presented by The Heartland Institute, Lincoln Legal Foundation, and Chicago Federalist Society. Cost is $30, which includes lunch and tip.

Mellor’s new book, The Dirty Dozen, has been hailed for its “wisdom, learning, concision, and lucid prose.” It’s available in bookstores now and at

Seating is limited. RSVP directly to the Chicago Federalist Society at [email protected].
