A First Amendment Defense for Protest
Professor Jenny E. Carroll of the University of Alabama School of Law presented her work A First Amendment Defense for Protest. The article argues that defendants facing criminal charges that may impact their speech should be allowed to present a First Amendment defense, giving the citizen jury decision-making power and challenging the current First Amendment landscape that subjugates marginalized speakers' rights.
