Free Speech

Incitement at 100—and 50—and Today, at Brooklyn Law School, April 12

A very interesting symposium, with (among many others) Floyd Abrams, Prof. Leslie Kendrick (Virginia), Nadine Strossen (former head of the ACLU), and more.


This year is the 100th anniversary of Schenck v. United States (and its accompanying cases), and the 50th of Brandenburg v. Ohio; the Brooklyn Law Review Symposium "Incitement at 100—And 50—And Today: Free Speech and Violence in the Modern World" marks the occasion, on April 12, 2019.
