Burt Neuborne, the Inez Milholland Professor of Civil Liberties and legal director of the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law, delivered the 2008 Tom Sealy lecture at UT Law School on Tuesday, March 18, 2008. Neuborne’s topic was Aiding and Abetting the Unthinkable: Legal Redress Against Holocaust Profiteers.

Educated at Cornell University and Harvard Law School, Neuborne has been a member of the NYU law faculty since 1972, where he teaches evidence and procedure. His area of expertise is the operation of the democratic process.

The Tom Sealy Lecture on Law and the Free Society was established in memory of Thomas Richard Sealy, Jr., a 1931 graduate of UT Law School. The lecture series promotes excellence in lectureship at UT Law School by providing a forum in which important issues concerning the dynamic between law and a free society are discussed.  Sealy, a prominent Texas attorney who practiced in Midland, served as a trustee and president of the UT Law School Foundation, and as a regent of The University of Texas System. Sealy died in 1992.
