More on the Volokh Event

As I mentioned before on here, Prof. Eugene Volokh will be coming to Milwaukee to give this year's Boden Lecture. I'm very excited for the event and have been closely following the new information about it. This just came in an e-mail...
Law, Politics, and Slippery Slopes
Presented by Eugene Volokh, Gary T. Schwartz Professor at UCLA Law School


Slippery slope arguments-¬ówe've all made some, and we've all pooh-poohed others. Liberals, conservatives, and libertarians all make them, though in different fields, whether free speech, privacy, euthanasia, gun control, various hot-button social issues, or many others. Do these arguments make sense, and, if so, when? How can we evaluate them better, and make them more effectively? Professor Volokh, who has published on the topic in the Harvard Law Review, will discuss these questions, and more.

Monday, October 16, 2006
4:30 - 5:30 p.m., lecture followed by a reception
Pfister Hotel, Imperial Ballroom
424 East Wisconsin Avenue
I have already RSVP'ed and reserved my spot. I expect Prof. Volokh to be insightful as always.
