The Volokh Conspiracy
Mostly law professors | Sometimes contrarian | Often libertarian | Always independent
My fellow Journal executive editor Prof. Jane Bambauer has been organizing these, and I expect them to be tremendously interesting. The first will be Tuesday (Oct. 26), noon Pacific/1 pm Mountain/2 pm Central/3 pm Eastern; you can watch it live on Zoom, and I'll also post video after it's done.
We'll begin with a brief discussion of the Journal (likely just about 5-10 minutes), but will then turn to the First Amendment / social media / common carrier question that occupied most of the Journal of Free Speech Law's first issue. The panelists and corresponding articles will be:
- Ashutosh Bhagwat, Do Platforms Have Editorial Rights?
- Jane Bambauer et al., Platforms: The First Amendment Misfits (this article, unlike the others, is being published in a different symposium, at the Indiana Law Journal)
- Christopher Yoo, The First Amendment, Common Carriers, and Public Accommodations: Net Neutrality, Digital Platforms, and Privacy
- Eugene Volokh, Treating Social Media Platforms Like Common Carriers?
Future panels will include Jack Balkin, Adam Candeub, Eric Goldman & Jess Miers, Daphne Keller, Kyle Langvardt, Mark Lemley, Alan Rozenshtein, Fred Schauer, Nadine Strossen, and Jordan Wallace-Wolf.
