Congratulations to Wendy Hernandez, Class of 2020 for being elected as the Editor-in-Chief of Volume 47! We are confident she will do great things for our journal next year!
The second issue of the 2017-2018 year, “The Free Speech Issue,” has been published. This issue details some of today’s most consequential discussions about the First Amendment. From fake news, to silenced speakers on college campuses around America, to armed protests, the necessity of defending traditional free speech principles has never been greater. While the idea of protecting the free speech rights of Nazis or white supremacists is abhorrent to most, it is that very value that separates America from much of the world. As Justice Louis Brandeis most eloquently wrote in Buckley v. Valeo, “sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman.” By allowing all in America to express their thoughts (without violence), all are able to better understand their own beliefs and engage in productive discourse.
Please enjoy our second issue here.
The first issue of the 2017-2018 year, "Protecting the Rights of the Marginalized" has been published. This issue is dedicated to those in most need of legal advocacy in our society today.
