Erwin Chemerinsky, newly appointed dean at University of California, Berkeley School of Law, will give a lecture Oct. 12, at 4 p.m. in the University of Richmond School of Law’s Moot Courtroom. His presentation will focus on the topic of free speech on campus with a Q&A to follow.

Chemerinsky is the author of 10 books, including “The Case Against the Supreme Court” and “Free Speech on Campus.” He was named a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2016. National Jurist magazine named Chemerinsky the most influential person in legal education earlier this year.

“I know our community will benefit from the expertise of Dean Chemerinsky in the field of constitutional law, and the topic of free speech, particularly in a campus environment, is a timely and important one,” said Wendy Perdue, Richmond Law School dean.

Chemerinsky, a nationally recognized constitutional law scholar, joined Berkeley in July 2017. He previously served as founding dean at University of California, Irvine School of Law.

This lecture is a part of the law school’s Emanuel Emroch Lecture series. The event is free to attend with a reception to follow. You can register online.
