YLSA of New York City - Annual Luncheon

The Yale Law School Association of New York City invites you and your guests to the Annual NYC Luncheon on Friday, May 2, 2014 with Robert C. Post ’77, Dean and Sol & Lillian Goldman Professor of Law, Yale Law School; and guest speaker John Fabian Witt ’99, Allen H. Duffy Class of 1960 Professor of Law, Yale Law School.  Professor Witt's topic, "The Big Switch: A Study in the Meaning of Freedom in Modern America."

Freedom of speech, racial equality, the right to privacy, and fair trial guarantees — the lynchpins of modern liberal freedom -- were all essentially unknown to American Constitutional law before the middle third of the twentieth century. John Witt's new work-in-progress offers an unusual explanation for this radical new concept of American freedom, one that looks to the great cultural controversies of the 1920s and early 1930s — and to the little-known story of the New York City philanthropic foundation that quietly financed them.
