ACS New York: Freedom of Speech in 21st Century America: Second Annual First Amendment Program

New York City Bar Association, New York, NY

Join the New York Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society and the New York City Bar Association (NYCBA) for a panel discussion on the scope and limits of First Amendment protection for certain types of speech, whether by news and media outlets, on school campuses, via social media, or as part of public protests.

The program will cover the current state of the law and recent developments. With an eye toward contributing to the public understanding of this complex area of law, it will focus on the legal issues and on identifying and addressing the areas where legal line-drawing either is fairly easy or remains difficult and uncertain.
