Earlier this month, a federal court judge went to speak to students at Stanford Law School. Judge Kyle Duncan has referred to the explosive protest that ensued as a “struggle session,” while student hecklers have defended their actions as counter-speech. My guest on today’s program has some thoughts on this free speech controversy — and where the university should go from here.


Alex Morey is a First Amendment attorney and the director of campus rights advocacy at the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression.

Alex Morey is my guest, today on Lean Out.
