The First Amendment Salon
in association with the
Floyd Abrams Institute for Freedom of Expression at Yale Law School
Washington, DC | New York | New Haven
March 30th, 2015
on the topic of
Is the First Amendment Being Misused as a Deregulatory Tool?
Floyd Abrams will moderate the dialogue.
The First Amendment Salon is a series of programs that aims to emulate the spirit of our Madisonian guarantee by opening a dialogue, at once robust and diverse, about free expression in America.
The Salon engages members of the First Amendment community – lawyers, academics, journalists, and activists – in an ongoing discussion of some of the key free speech issues of our day. From time to time, the Salon hosts a no-charge, 90-minute discussion concerning a contemporary Supreme Court case, book, article, legal brief, memorandum, or other timely topic.
The various events, consisting of a limited number of invitees at each site, take place at the offices of Levine Sullivan Koch & Schulz in Washington, DC and New York and also at the Floyd Abrams Institute for Freedom of Expression at the Yale Law School. A reception precedes each discussion in order to develop a better sense of community.
This event will address the contemporary relationship between deregulation and the First Amendment. The salon will feature two renowned constitutional scholars, Jack Balkin, the Knight Professor of Constitutional Law and the First Amendment at Yale Law School, and Martin Redish, the Louis and Harriet Ancel Professor of Law and Public Policy at the Northwestern University School of Law. Floyd Abrams, the preeminent First Amendment lawyer, will guide their discussion.
The salon will be held at the Abrams Institute in New Haven and will be streamed live by video conference to LSKS’sWashington, DC and New York City offices. Event details:
