Occupational licensing is often deployed by industries to limit job competition, and it is no different with the American Bar Association. I was joined by Clifford Winston, senior fellow at Brookings Institution's Economic Studies program, applied microeconomist, and author of Trouble at the Bar.

Together, we will take a close look at the adverse effects that the ABA regulation has on the legal market and the economy as a whole – including the increase in cost, reduction in quality, and the limit of access to legal services for the general population. Clifford argues that by deregulating the legal industry, there would be a mutual benefit to both lawyers, prospective lawyers, and society in general.
