Speech at Twenty-First Century Schools and Universities

February 16-17, 2024

It is with great pleasure that the Stanford Law Review Volume 76 announces its 2024 Symposium: “Speech at Twenty-First Century Schools and Universities,” which will take place on February 16-17, 2024. We are excited to welcome the nation’s leading experts in free speech to discuss the many First Amendment issues that impact schools and universities in the twenty-first century—social media, student activism, academic freedom, artificial intelligence, book bans, and more. We are also thrilled to host two fantastic keynote speakers at the 2024 Symposium. Our Opening Keynote will be delivered by Mary Beth Tinker, and our Keynote Dinner speaker is Dean Erwin Chemerinsky.

The 2024 Symposium strives to engage all members of the Stanford Law School community and beyond. For the first time, the Stanford Law Review Symposium will feature Comments from three Student Contributors, who will have their pieces published in the Symposium issue, which is back in print, and sit on panels alongside this year’s authors. Our panels will also feature discussants who can bring non-legal perspectives to the conversation, including educators and policymakers. Stanford Law students will also be able to engage with authors and panelists more meaningfully through break-out lunches and other opportunities.
