The Albright Institute at Wellesley College welcomes former U.S. Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates for a discussion titled “Principles Not Policy: Essential Norms in Preserving the Rule of Law.” Yates will speak with Wellesley Professor Lawrence A. Rosenwald at a closed event for the 48 Albright Wintersession fellows.

Yates, a 27-year veteran of the U.S. Department of Justice, spent more than two decades as a federal prosecutor in Georgia and was appointed U.S. deputy attorney general in 2015 by President Barack Obama. She was named acting U.S. attorney general in January 2017 and served in that position for just 10 days before being fired for defying the Trump administration’s controversial executive order that temporarily halted entrance to the United States from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
