In the wake of neo-Nazi riots in Charlottesville and elsewhere, and a surge in hate crimes across the country, a complex question that has recurred in American law and society for centuries is once again in the public eye: how much tolerance should the nation have for unpopular speech or minority opinions?

Renowned law professors and leading appellate judges will discuss the current state of free speech law in the United States, how and why those approaches developed, the effects liberal speech rights have had for good and ill, how other countries approach free speech questions, and more.

Seating is on a first-come, first-first-served basis.

Co-sponsored with The Bar Association of San Francisco

1 Hour free Participatory MCLE Credit.
