The First Amendment Law Review will host its annual symposium in Chapel Hill, NC, on October 24, where scholars from across the country will participate in a discussion focused on the current legal debates regarding network neutrality.
As the only legal journal in the country dedicated solely to the First Amendment, the First Amendment Law Review has a tradition of hosting excellent symposia with impressive keynote speakers such as Erwin Chemerinsky and Floyd Abrams. This year, we are pleased to announce that Marvin Ammori, one of the nation’s most prominent scholars on the intersection of net neutrality and the First Amendment, will deliver the keynote address.
This year’s Symposium will host First Amendment and net neutrality scholars including Dawn Nunziato, Kevin Werbach, Geoffrey Manne, Stuart Benjamin, James Grimmelmann, Enrique Armijo, and Sarah Morris. Lunch will be provided for all registered attendees.
The Symposium will feature two panels. The first panel will discuss the constitutional authority to regulate and the normative arguments regarding regulation and will feature Dawn Nunziato and Sarah Morris. The second panel will discuss technical, financial, and other challenges to implementation and will feature Enrique Armijo, Kevin Werbach, Geoffrey Manne, Stuart Benjamin, and James Grimmelmann.
