Todd Graves participates in panel discussion on free speech

Graves Garrett Partner Todd Graves recently participated in a discussion of the procedures surrounding the protection and enforcement of Freedom of Speech during the Federalist Society’s 2014 National Lawyers Convention. The session, titled “How First Amendment Procedures Protect First Amendment Substance,” explored “the various procedural safeguards applied – or not applied – in the context of the Freedom of Speech.”

Graves was invited to participate on the panel based on his experience and success in the growing and highly regulated field of political and election-related speech.

Other panelists included Prof. Aaron H. Caplan, Loyola Law School, Los Angeles; Prof. Robert A. Destro, The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law; Prof. Alan B. Morrison, Lerner Family Associate Dean for Public Interest and Public Service Law and Professorial Lecturer in Law, The George Washington University Law School; and Prof. Eugene Volokh, Gary T. Schwartz Professor of Law, University of California, Los Angeles School of Law. Serving as moderator of the panel was the Hon. David R. Stras, Associate Justice, Minnesota Supreme Court.
