September 20, 2018: First Amendment News (FAN) Publishes Original Essays By Women On Free Speech Law 

To commemorate FAN’s 200th edition, Ronald K.L. Collins asked 15 female lawyers and professors to write original essays on any aspect of free speech they found intriguing. Women tend to be underrepresented in the First Amendment arena, and Collins wanted to take the opportunity to let their voices shine.

The essays are informative, thought-provoking, and wide ranging. Sarah Haan, an Associate Professor of Law at Washington and Lee School of Law, posits that Facebook’s regulation of political speech relies heavily on speaker discrimination, while Sonja West, a professor of First Amendment law at the University of Georgia School of Law, writes about the Supreme Court routinely fails to protect the press under the First Amendment.
