Weinrib to HLS

Via Brian Leiter's Law School Reports, we have word that Laura Weinrib has accepted a position at Harvard Law School. Currently at the University of Chicago Law School (with an associate membership in the Department of History), Professor Weinrib is the author of The Taming of Free Speech: America’s Civil Liberties Compromise (Harvard University Press, 2016). The book "traces the emergence during the first half of the twentieth century of a constitutional and court-centered concept of civil liberties as a defining feature of American democracy." Weinrib holds a J.D. from Harvard Law School and Ph.D. in history from Princeton University. After law school, she clerked for Judge Thomas L. Ambro of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

Congratulations to Professor Weinrib and to HLS!
