Inside Media: Floyd Abrams on "The Soul of the First Amendment" @ Knight TV Studio | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

Floyd Abrams, an award-winning legal scholar and America’s best-known First Amendment lawyer, talks about his new book, “The Soul of the First Amendment,” which examines how American law protects free speech.

Abrams’ book argues that free speech is protected more often, more intensely, and more controversially in the United States than anywhere else in the world, including other democratic nations such as Canada and Great Britain

Abrams addresses legal issues from the adoption of the Bill of Rights through such recent cases such as Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission and examines the repeated conflicts between claims of free speech and those of national security.

A book signing will follow the program.
