Thursday 30 October 4:30pm
Yale Law School Dean Robert Post will deliver a lecture on "Academic Freedom and the First Amendment" as part of Political Theory Project's Odyssey Lecture Series. Post will discuss the need for the free formation of public opinion and the need for the distribution and creation of expertise, amid the Supreme Court's continued inconsistent decision to acknowledge the relationship between academic freedom and the U.S. Constitution. The talk will lead into a discussion about clarifying the underdeveloped doctrine. The event begins at 4:30 p.m. in MacMillan Hall, Room 117, 167 Thayer St.
