    WHEN DO THREATS HAVE FIRST AMENDMENT VALUE?

    Location: Wilf Campus, Weissberg Commons

    Date: Sunday, April 19, 2015
    Time:

    11:45 AM Check in for Wilf Participants

    1:45 PM Check in for Beren Participants 

    What, exactly, constitutes a "true threat" within the meaning of First Amendment jurisprudence?  Should the state of mind of the intended target be taken into account? Is it possible for the speaker to know the target's state of mind? Should the term "true threat" be defined more narrowly? Students from all majors are invited to research the topic and present a 5-minute oral argument in support of or against the issue. Download more details at 2015 Langfan Info.
