Nimmer Lecture by Seana Valentine Shiffrin

February 28, 2022 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Contrary to common wisdom, some government speech directly violates the First Amendment by virtue of its content. Many of these violations, however, are nonjusticiable. Their nonjusticiability does not render their unconstitutionality moot. Instead, we might consider whether private entities, like social media outlets that deny service to ‘illegal speech,’ should fill the vacuum and serve as private agents of constitutional enforcement.

Event to be held at Law School Room 1347 followed by a brief reception at Shapiro Courtyard where food and beverage will be served.
