Introducing a new monthly lecture series for alumni, local practitioners, and the public, featuring Case Western Reserve University School of Law professors.

From September 2011 through June 2012, the School of Law will host 10 morning lectures at The City Club of Cleveland. Attend as many as you like, and join us for coffee and breakfast beforehand.

The Supreme Court has decided several significant First Amendment cases over the past two years. Some of these decisions have afforded increased protection to comparatively affluent claimants, prompting critics to suggest that the Court has been comforting the comfortable and afflicting the afflicted. This program will assess the extent to which the recent First Amendment rulings have afforded increased protection to the powerful at the expense of outsiders.
