The Floyd Abrams Institute for Freedom of Expression at Yale Law School sponsors the First Amendment Salons, a regular series of free, 90-minute discussions concerning contemporary Supreme Court cases, books, articles, legal briefs, memoranda, and other timely topics.
The by-invitation discussions rotate between the offices of Levine Sullivan Koch & Schulz in Washington, D.C., and New York, and the Abrams Institute at Yale Law School in New Haven. Each Salon is videocast to the other two venues so that people in all three locations can participate.
The co-chairs of the Salon are Ronald Collins (University of Washington Law School), Lee Levine (Levine Sullivan Koch & Schulz) and David Skover ’78 (Seattle University Law School). Floyd Abrams, Sandra Baron, David Schulz, and Robert Post are members of its advisory board.
“The idea behind the salon,” Levine explained, “is to engage members of the First Amendment community — lawyers, academics, journalists, and activists — in an ongoing discussion about some of the key free speech issues of our times. We thus welcome this unique association with such a distinguished Institute committed to the same mission.”
