Brad Snyder, associate professor of law, has been invited to present "Sacco-Vanzetti and the Supreme Court," at the Supreme Court of the United States on November 16.
The lecture is based on a chapter in Snyder's forthcoming book, "The House of Truth: A Washington Political Salon and the Foundations of American Liberalism." The book tells the story of a Dupont Circle political salon, where Felix Frankfurter and Walter Lippmann lived, and Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. and Louis Brandeis were regular guests.
Snyder teaches constitutional law, constitutional history, civil procedure and sports law at University of Wisconsin Law School. He is also the author of "A Well-Paid Slave: Curt Flood’s Fight for Free Agency in Professional Sports."
The lecture is part of Leon Silverman Lecture Series, organized by the Supreme Court Historical Society.
