On Friday, November 18, the First Amendment Law Review and the UNC Center for Media Law and Policy hosted an in-person symposium at the Carolina Club with virtual access on Zoom. The symposium focused on the First Amendment rulings written by Justice Stephen Breyer over his 28 years on the Supreme Court.

Stephen G. Breyer served as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1994 until his retirement in 2022. Over his nearly three decades as a Supreme Court justice, Breyer cultivated a reputation for pragmatism, especially with regard to the First Amendment.

The Symposium consisted of a keynote address and three panels:

  • Justice Breyer and the Freedom of Expression
  • Justice Breyer and the Religion Clauses
  • Justice Breyer’s and future First Amendment challenges
