Notre Dame Law Review hosts its annual conference November 2, 2018. The conference title this year is Contemporary Free Speech: The Marketplace of Ideas a Century Later.
The Symposium will survey the development of the modern free speech doctrine. In particular, the Symposium focuses on the Holmesian account of the “free trade in ideas.” Panels of leading academics from law schools across the country will reflect on the development of First Amendment law in the 100-years since Justice Holmes’s dissent in Abrams v. United States. This year’s panelists will discuss a variety of contemporary free speech topics, ranging from hate speech, to student speech, to commercial speech, to worker speech.
