Baum Lecture on Civil Liberties & Civil Rights is one of the law schools
premier events. In the 2012 spring semester, the lecture will be given by Eldar Shafir of Princetons Psychology Department(http://psych.princeton.edu/psychology/research/shafir/index.php).
The topic will be how decision making in the context of poverty affects the life of the impoverished and what that means for civil liberties in case you were
wondering about the connection.
