Professor Eugene Volokh Writes for New York Times in “Room for Debate” on the Importance of Protecting the Freedom to Express

November 2, 2015 – Professor Eugene Volokh wrote about the significance of the Supreme Court’s decisions to “protect the freedom to express” even “the thought that we hate” — including “discriminatory” viewpoints expressed by student groups at public universities—in a piece for “Room for Debate” in the New York Times.

“Justice Ginsburg has seen how many civil rights movements succeeded in America, in large part because of their speech and the constitutional protection for such speech. Future movements, from all political positions, need that protection. And they won’t get it if colleges teach students the habits of censorship rather than of freedom,” wrote Professor Volokh.
