Building off our dinner and discussion series from last year and last semester, the Society of Law and Ethics hopes to have a student-driven discussion related to free speech on college and university campuses. States such as Nebraska are currently considering legislation to restore free speech on college campuses, and this is something that has been in the news a lot lately and is also actively being discussed at Columbia. We hope to give students a forum to share their thoughts on the matter and tackle the issue from a legal as well as moral perspective. Topics include: What role should the law play? What does the first amendment guarantee? How do you feel about special free speech zones? Do law schools have a special obligation when it comes to free speech?
Spaces are limited. RSVP by filling out this form.
All RSVPs are on a first come first served basis based on filling out the form. Those not immediately offered a spot will be placed on a waiting list. You will be notified by e-mail if you have a spot reserved or are on the waitlist.
This event sponsored in part by the Student Senate with funds from the Student Activity Fee.
