A University of Wisconsin law professor will give a lecture at the U.S. Supreme Court.
Brad Snyder, an associate professor at the UW Law School, will give a lecture titled Sacco-Vanzetti and the Supreme Court at 5:30 p.m. local time on Nov. 16 at the U. S. Supreme Court.
The lecture is based on a chapter of Snyder’s forthcoming book, “The House of Truth: A Washington Political Salon and the Foundations of American Liberalism,” according to a news release. The book is about a Dupont Circle political salon at which Justices Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. and Louis Brandeis were regular guests.
The lecture is part of the Leon Silverman Lecture Series, which is organized by the Supreme Court Historical Society.
Snyder teaches constitutional law, constitutional history, civil procedure and sports law at the University of Wisconsin Law School. He also wrote “A Well-Paid Slave: Curt Flood’s Fight for Free Agency in Professional Sports.”Follow @erikastrebel
