Event description

Description

Several weeks before the protests in Charlottesville turned bloody, the ACLU of Virginia's legal team convinced a judge that a group of white nationalists should be able to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee where the monument stood, instead of at a neutral site sought by city officials. Although the ACLU of Virginia's position was consistent with the ACLU's history of defending free-speech rights on all parts of the spectrum, fallout from Charlottesville has caused the ACLU to soften its stance, especially with respect to groups who intend to march while visibly armed. With more protests--and counterprotests--on the horizon, how should we manage the intersection of the First Amendment and hate speech in the coming years? Please join us for an engaging discussion, with several local attorneys and scholars at the forefront of this debate. Oh, and there will be LUNCH. 1 hour of CLE credit, pending approval.

Panelists will include: Prof. Amos Guiora, Professor of Law, S.J. Quinney College of Law, University of Utah; Brittney Nystrom, Executive Director of the ACLU of Utah; Richard Von Wagoner, Partner, Snow, Christensen, & Martineau, and Forrest Crawford, Weber State University, Professor of Education.
