Discussion with Defenders of the First Amendment, featuring Floyd Abrams and Nadine Strossen

September 24, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The NYLS Program in Law and Journalism hosts a conversation with Professor Nadine Strossen and our nation’s premier First Amendment attorney, Floyd Abrams, in a freewheeling discussion about the Citizens United case, Wikileaks, and more.

The event and candid conversation also marks the publication of “Friend of the Court: On the Front Lines with the First Amendment“ a newly released collection of Abrams’s writings, speeches, articles, debates, briefs, oral arguments, and testimony from his entire career. The writings illuminate topics of ongoing import: WikiLeaks, the correctness of the Citizens United case, journalist shield laws, and, not least, the responsibilities of the press.

Pizza and light refreshments will be served.
