Government Speech: The Government’s Ability to Compel and Restrict Speech
Law Review Symposium
NOV 19, 2010
9:00 AM - 4:15 PM
Moot Courtroom (A59)

The 2010-2011 Law Review Symposium will address limits on government speech and the government's ability to claim speech as its own in both restricting and compelling speech. Panels will examine 1) the intersection between government speech and the establishment clause (with a focus on the implications of Salazar v. Buono); 2) the extent to which the government can control school curricula and restrict the work of law school clinics; 3) the extent to which the government can compel speech by denominating the speech as its own.
