Jim Harberson

IJ's Newest Caped Crusader Strikes a Blow for Freedom

Jim Harberson (LSC 99) recently joined the Institute for Justice’s D.C. staff as the inaugural Fellow in Public Interest Litigation. The two-year fellowship exposes Jim to all aspects of IJ's litigation work and affords him the opportunity to produce legal scholarship germane to IJ's mission. Jim is currently assisting with several cases, including IJ’s Norwood, Ohio, eminent domain challenge, a compelled speech case challenging the "Got Milk" campaign, and a free speech challenge to California’s licensing regime for real estate websites.

Jim has worked with IJ on and off since his second year of law school in 1998. While still a student, he assisted in several cases, including Vera Coking’s successful challenge to Atlantic City and Donald Trump’s attempt to take her home for a limousine parking lot for his new casino. In 2002 Jim began work with IJ’s Arizona Chapter

In addition to his previous work with IJ, Jim brings to his new fellowship experience in corporate law and as a law school instructor, as well as work with both the Federalist Society and the Rutherford Institute. A graduate of Cornell University, Jim earned his law degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Arts in Religion from Yale University. Jim is the latest example of the talent and dedication HAN members bring to the cause of liberty, and IJ welcomes him to the fight!
