National Constitution Center president and CEO Jeffrey Rosen recently interviewed Floyd Abrams, the legendary First Amendment attorney of firm Cahill Gordon who argued Citizens United and the Pentagon Papers case, among many, many others.
In the interview, Abrams discusses his new book, The Soul of the First Amendment, which explores how and why America protects free speech more often, more intensely, and more controversially than anywhere else in the world.
The program was part of America’s Town Hall, the Constitution Center’s ongoing series of constitutional conversations and debates held in Philadelphia and across the country. Visit constitutioncenter.org/debate to learn more.
