The Information Society Project at Yale Law School will host the second Freedom of Expression Scholars Conference (FESC) at Yale Law School on May 3-4, 2014. The FESC is sponsored by the Abrams Institute for Freedom of Expression.

The conference brings scholars together to discuss their works-in-progress concerning freedom of speech, expression, press, association, petition, assembly, and related issues of knowledge and information policy.

The conference offers participants an opportunity to receive substantive feedback through group discussion. Each accepted paper will be assigned a discussant, who will lead discussion and provide feedback to the author. Participants will be expected to read papers in advance, and to attend the entire conference.
