About the Speaker: Professor Fried, who studied jurisprudence at Oxford, was Solicitor General of the United States between 1985 and 1989, and was an Associate Justice of the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts between 1995 and 1999. He has argued more the 50 cases before the US Supreme Court. His scholarly and teaching interests have been moved by the connection between normative theory and the concrete institutions of public and private law. His publications include fundamental inquiries into broad legal institutions, such as Contract as Promise (1980), Making Tort Law (2003) and Saying What the Law Is: The Constitution in the Supreme Court (2004).
