The First Amendment and Epidemics
February 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Under what circumstances can an epidemic justify the government restricting religious worship services? What about restrictions on other First-Amendment-protected activities, such as protests or political party gatherings? Volokh will discuss how the Free Exercise Clause, the Free Speech Clause, and the Assembly Clause bear on these questions. This discussion-led presentation will be moderated by Harry Pohlman, professor of political science.
