Do Corporations Have Constitutional Rights?

Details

March 5, 2010 5:30pm - 8:00pm

Stanford Law School
Crown Quadrangle
559 Nathan Abbott Way
Stanford, CA 94305-8610

The Stanford Constitutional Law Center is pleased to bring together prominent legal scholars to discuss one of the most pressing and fundamental questions of constitutional law: do corporations have constitutional rights? This question is central to the Supreme Court's recent campaign finance case, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. But it also comes up in many other areas -- criminal prosecution of corporate entities, government demands for corporate data, punitive damages, and freedom of the press -- to name only a few.

The discussion will feature Prof. Daniel Greenwood (Hofstra University School of Law) and Prof. Larry Ribstein (University of Illinois College of Law), two leading scholars on the intersection of the corporation and the Constitution. The moderator will be Prof. Michael McConnell, and distinguished commentators will be Prof. Kathleen Sullivan and Prof. Joseph Grundfest.

Sponsored by The Stanford Constitutional Law Center. This event is free and open to the public; registration requested.
