Free Speech on College Campuses Subject of 35th Annual Jefferson B. Fordham Debate at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law on Nov. 15

University of Utah

Free speech issues have erupted on college campuses nationwide, sparking conversation about the role of free speech and the protections of First Amendment rights on campuses, particularly at state institutions. Controversial speakers are supported by arguments promoting the broad and equal protections of the First Amendment while critics cite the disruptive effect of such speakers on campus and the accompanying risks to safety and property.

Lyrissa Lidsky of the University of Missouri and Robert Post of Yale University will debate the question of whether the First Amendment rights of members of university communities may be constrained when their speech undermines the educational or research missions of the university.
