Next Up in Tenth Dems U: “Political Fraud and the First Amendment” with NU Law Professor Marty Redish

We’re really excited about the third in our series of Tenth Dems U events for August, which has been approved for 1.5 professional responsibility CLE credits for lawyers. We already had a great event on August 4 with Rachel Bitecofer, who shared her predictions with a rapt audience of more than 160 people, and another on August 9 with Sierra Club Illinois’s Deputy Director Kady McFadden who, with her colleague Jess Beverly, discussed the Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA-HB3624/SB2321) and how Illinois can move forward 100% clean energy legislation in this moment in time.

On Wednesday, August 12, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm, Northwestern Law Professor Marty Redish, among the most frequently cited legal scholars in the country, will discuss whether the First Amendment protects the use of knowingly false speech to achieve a political goal. RSVP online for “Political Fraud and the First Amendment: Does the Constitution Protect Lies?” with Constitutional Law Professor Marty Redish. Professional responsibility CLE credit available for attorneys.
