  • Vanderbilt Hall, Room 240 40 Washington Square South New York, NY 10012 United States

JLL advisor Eugene Volokh will speak on "Mechanisms of the Slippery Slope" - the way by which one step today may make the next step more likely tomorrow.  Volokh will discuss the appeal of slippery slope arguments to libertarians, conservatives, and progressives alike.  He will also show how these arguments apply to a vast range of fields, such as free speech, guns, privacy, medical ethics, tort liability, same-sex marriage, and more.

JLL Advisor Mario Rizzo will introduce professor Volokh and offer some commentary at the end.
