Webinar - Confessions of a Free Speech Lawyer with Rod Smolla
Rod Smolla has spent his professional career as a litigator and scholar on free speech issues. His book, Confessions of a Free Speech Lawyer: Charlottesville and the Politics of Hate explored the tumultuous events in Charlottesville and the University of Virginia in 2017 to explore issues involving speech, race, and cultural divides in America. Those issues have now intensified in the summer of 2020, as protests over COVID-19 and systemic racism in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd have swept America. In this session Smolla will present opening thoughts, discuss his book, and will answer questions from attendees.
Rod Smolla is Dean and Professor of Law at the Delaware Law School of Widener University and is the author of numerous books, including The Constitution Goes to College, Deliberate Intent, and Jerry Falwell v. Larry Flynt. He is a nationally known scholar and writer and has presented oral argument in state and federal courts across the country.
