Event Date:  April 6, 2019 - 2:00pm As a teacher of legal ethics, Professor Rubinson has long been interested in the tension between professional obligations and moral imperatives. A stark example of this tension is when abolitionist judges were confronted with the question of whether to order the return of alleged runaway slaves under the Fugitive Slave Act. Professor Rubinson will explore the agonizing choices these judges faced, and examine documents of the time, including runaway ads placed by Major Thomas Snowden of Montpelier.
