Daniel Pollitt

Daniel H. Pollitt is now an emeritus professor of constitutional law, having retired in 1992 after thirty-seven years in the UNC Law School. He was in private practice in Washington for many years after World War II, principally as an associate of Joseph Rauh, the celebrated advocacy lawyer who helped Eleanor Roosevelt found Americans for Democratic Action. While a member of the UNC faculty, Professor Pollitt frequently left the classroom to serve as defense attorney in capital cases and to represent clients among the poor, disfranchised, and disabled on issues of free speech and civil liberties. For years he has spent his summers as a special counsel to the U.S. House Committee on Education and Labor. He has been a member of the governing group of the Southern Regional Council, president of the North Carolina branch of the American Civil Liberties Union, and a member of ACLU’s national board. At UNC he served four years as elected chair of the faculty. He has also served as both president of the UNC chapter of the American Association of University Professors and a representative from the Southeast on AUUP’s national board. He received his A.B from Wesleyan University in 1943 and his L.L.B. from Cornell Law School, 1949. Pollitt passed away in 2009
