The Washington University in St. Louis School of Law’s Public Interest Law & Policy Speakers Series spring lineup kicks off Thursday, Feb. 4, with a lecture by Gregory Magarian, the Thomas and Karole Greene Professor of Law, titled “The First Amendment and the Mess We’re In: From the Streets to the Cloud.”
Magarian, a renowned First Amendment expert, will address protests, insurrection, private cancellation and other related constitutional concerns.
On Tuesday, Feb. 9, Judge Robert L. Wilkins, of the District of Columbia U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, will present “My Family’s Journey From Slave to Citizen,” as part of the School of Law’s celebration of Black History Month and Judicial Appreciation Month.
