The Slippery Slope Argument by Professor Eugene Volokh

Noon - 1 pm - Room 230

The Federalist Society and Association of Women Law Students Present

Mechanisms of the Slippery Slope, Professor Eugene Volokh (UCLA Law, VolokhConspiracy.com)

Slippery slope arguments -- we've all made some, and we've all pooh-poohed others.  Liberals, conservatives, and libertarians all make them, though in different fields, whether abortion, religious exemptions, same-sex marriage, free speech, privacy, euthanasia, gun control, or many others.  Do these arguments make sense, and, if so, when?  How can we evaluate them better, and make them more effectively?  Professor Volokh, author of "The Mechanisms of the Slippery Slope," 116 Harv. L. Rev. 1026 (2003), http://www.law.ucla.edu/volokh/slipperyshorter.pdf (or, for a still shorter version, see http://www.law.ucla.edu/volokh/slipperyfar.pdf), will discuss these questions, and more.
