Professor Eugene Volokh Comes to NYU to Take on Slippery Slope Arguments

On Thursday April 18th, UCLA Professor, and JLL Advisor, Eugene Volokh is coming to NYU to discuss the concept of slippery slope arguments in an event titled "Mechanisms of the Slippery Slope." Professor 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.

NYU Professor, and JLL Advisor, Mario Rizzo will also offer his thoughts on how slippery slope mechanisms relate to current gun control and food paternalism policies in NYC.

The event will be held at 4pm in Vanderbilt Hall Room 204. Both professors will welcome questions from the audience. Food and beverages will be served.
