Robert Bernhoft’s presentation at Defiance Press’s Censorship and First Amendment Conference
January 13th, 2023
Bernhoft Law has been at the forefront of First Amendment constitutional litigation, protecting and defending clients’ rights to freedom of speech, association, and expression for decades. Bernhoft Law’s First Amendment advocacy now obtains increased importance, with the well-established right to free speech and expression under renewed and seemingly relentless attack.
Founding partner Robert Bernhoft gave a timely First Amendment presentation last year at a Censorship/Free Speech conference in Houston, Texas. Even informed Americans often don’t understand the metes and bounds of protected speech. For example, do you believe “you can’t yell fire in a crowded movie theatre” because that’s not protected speech? Not so, as Bernhoft relates. Bernhoft outlines the history of the First Amendment in the 20th Century with the most important cases, and exhorts the attendees not only to fight for their First Amendment rights, but for others’ as well – even those they might disagree with.
The 10-minute video is a must-see for anyone interested in the essential rules of First Amendment rights in America today.
