The people who believe the fraternity system is fundamentally broken have been throwing things at it for years to see what sticks. Last week, yet another suit was filed on the basis of discrimination—this time at Yale. On Wednesday’s show, what one lawyer’s work over the years against fraternities can tell us about what about needs to change on college campuses and if anything ever will.

Guest: Doug Fierberg, attorney and founder of the Fierberg National Law Group.
