Freedom of Expression on Campus

Professor Gail Heriot

Why are the institutions supposedly devoted to free inquiry the most intolerant of opposing viewpoints today? Professor Heriot will discuss the various ways in which many colleges and universities are violating the First Amendment and/or the norms of academic freedom, how pressure from the federal government and civil lawsuits have sometimes nudged them in that direction, and what courts have been doing about the problem.

Instructor: Gail Heriot is Professor of Law at the University of San Diego, where she teaches Civil Rights Law & History, Employment Discrimination, Legislation in the Modern Administrative State, Remedies, and Torts. In addition, she is a member of the eight-member U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. She is a graduate of Northwestern University and the University of Chicago Law School.
