The Stanford Constitutional Law Center's Constitutional Conversations and the Federalist Society present a speech by FIRE president Greg Lukianoff on how the illiberal campus attitudes towards free speech threaten our democracy.

Greg Lukianoff is the president of FIRE and has been with FIRE since 2001, when he was hired to be the organization's first director of legal and public advocacy. Greg is a graduate of American University and of Stanford Law School, where he focused on First Amendment and constitutional law.

Greg has published articles in the LA Times, The Boston Globe, The Stanford Technology Law Review, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Fraternal Law, Inside Higher Ed, the New York Post, and numerous other publications. He is a blogger for the Huffington Post and served as a regular columnist for the Daily Journal of Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Greg is a frequent guest on local and national syndicated radio programs, has represented FIRE on national television shows-including CBS Evening News, The O'Reilly Factor, Glenn Beck, The Abrams Report, Hannity and Colmes, and Buchanan and Press-and has testified before the U.S. Senate about free speech issues on America's campuses.

Before joining FIRE, Greg practiced law in Northern California, interned at the ACLU of Northern California and the Organization for Aid to Refugees in Prague, Czech Republic, and was the development manager of the EnvironMentors Project in Washington, D.C. Greg, along with Harvey A. Silverglate and David French, is a co-author of FIRE's Guide to Free Speech on Campus. Greg is also a proud member of the board of directors of Philadelphia's Theater Exile. He lives in New York City.
