Professor of Law

Before becoming a lawyer, Professor Conrad became an historian. He still publishes as much in history journals as in law reviews. At Harvard his dissertation was about a school of eighteenth-century philosophy that greatly influenced the founding of America. As a student at the Yale Law School, Conrad pursued the connections between history and law. Since then his research has been supported by, among other organizations, the Institute for Advanced Studies in Berlin, the Woodrow Wilson Program at the Smithsonian Institution, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, which has twice awarded him support. Although an avowed "Left Liberal," he has been closely associated with The Liberty Fund, in Indianapolis. He also has a longstanding association with many gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered support and advocacy organizations.

Conrad teaches most of his courses from an outsider's perspective that specifically questions and critically examines the very authority of legalism as an ethos and ideology of rule-following. This is true not only of his courses in American legal and constitutional history, but in his family law course as well.

Harking back to his days as an associate at Ropes & Gray, Conrad also teaches Remedies, a course focused on training for the everyday practice of law; he tries to conduct this course as if he "were the supervising partner in a law firm."

"I am fascinated by the fundamental conflict between the parties' individual interests in gaining at the expense of the other, and their collective interest in cooperating for mutual benefit," he says.

David C. Williams
John S. Hastings Professor of Law

B.A., 1982, Haverford College; J.D., 1985, Harvard University. Board of Editors, Harvard Law Review. Law Clerk, Hon. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, 1985-86. Cornell Law School, 1989-93.

A noted constitutional law scholar, Professor Williams has written numerous articles in major journals throughout the country. He is a popular lecturer on Native American people and on the Second Amendment. Winner of the Wallace Teaching Award, Professor Williams teaches Constitutional Law and Native American Law.

In recent years, his research has focused on two aspects of constitutional law: the right of Native American tribes to self-government within the American constitutional system, and the alleged constitutional right of the people to keep and bear arms in order to make revolution against government. These two seemingly unrelated topics raise the common theme of examining the possibility of popular government outside the normal channels of state and federal elections, and more specifically the claimed right of an "organic" people to resist the encroachment of an "alien" government.

Susan Hoffman Williams
Walter W. Foskett Professor of Law

B.A., 1982, J.D., 1985, Harvard University. Law Clerk, Hon. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, 1985-86. Cornell Law School, 1989-93. Member, Phi Beta Kappa.

She is currently completing a book entitled Truth, Autonomy, and Speech: Feminist Theory and the Law of Free Expression under contract to New York University Press. She is the co-director of the Feminist Curricular Resources Clearinghouse of Women in Legal Education.

Regarded as an insightful teacher and scholar, Professor Williams believes that the best lawyers do not conduct legal analysis in a vacuum. "We must train our students to think and argue clearly and critically," she says. "But at the same time, we must encourage them to bring their own values and experiences to bear on the legal issues they are studying. Law is a mirror in which we can read our character as a society, both as it presently exists and as we would ideally like it to be."

Professor Williams teaches courses in property, first amendment law, AIDS and the law, and seminars in feminist jurisprudence and problems in political theory.
