What Does ‘Freedom of Speech’ Really Mean?

Tuesday, January 24 from 5:30 – 7:00pm at Manchester Community Library

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Rodney Smolla, president of the Vermont Law and Graduate School, to talk about freedom of speech which is enshrined in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Many colorful cases have explored the boundary of what “freedom of speech” does and does not mean. In this talk, Professor Smolla will describe several of the cases he litigated, including current cases in which he is involved, as the backdrop for exploring the question posed in the title. This talk will be available as an in-person event only. Registration is $22 per person. For more information or to register, please call our office at 802-867-0111 or visit
