David J. Hayes, JD ’78, who's back at Stanford Law School as a visiting lecturer after serving in the White House as Special Assistant to President Biden for Climate Policy, advocates a whole of government approach to climate change challenges.
Please join us in celebrating the pioneering and broad-ranging scholarship of Lawrence Friedman, the Marion Rice Kirkwood Professor of Law, Emeritus at Stanford Law School. A leading founder and champion of the law-and-society movement, Friedman has made an indelible impact on the nature of legal scholarship and teaching, not only in the United States, but also throughout the world. Closer to home, he has left an enormous mark on Stanford Law, such that generations of colleagues and students have come to associate him with the very best of SLS—brilliant scholarship and teaching, combined with true menschlichkeit.
The event will consist of two separate panels, each focused on a different, recent book published by Friedman—The Walled Garden: Law and Privacy in Modern Society (co-authored with Joanna Grossman) and Personal Identity in the Modern World. Leading commentators from Stanford and elsewhere will offer their reflections on these books, allowing time for Friedman to respond and to engage with members of the audience.
