What’s love got to do with the law? Then again, what’s the law got to do with falling in love? From coast to coast, Life of the Law occasionally takes to the stage with LIVE LAW to present true, first-person stories about how the law shapes and transforms lives.

Our most recent LIVE LAW 3 event in San Francisco took on the theme of LOVE and the Law, and our first storyteller was Mark Leno, a state Senator in California. Ten years ago, Leno made the decision to fight “a war over a word.”

Jim Brosnahan is a senior trial attorney at Morrison and Forester, and says the law has absolutely nothing and everything to do with falling in love. For Brosnahan, it all began with a dinner more than fifty years ago.
