The Student Paper Series provides a forum for intellectually stimulating discussions of student scholarship and is open to all Duke Law students (you do not need to present a paper to participate). On March 31, Christopher Ford will present "Regulating the Marketplaces of Political and Commercial Ideas." Ford argues in opposition to recent commentary, that Citizens United will not impact the Court's commercial speech doctrine, most prominently outlined in Central Hudson, because that doctrine affects only speech that occurs in the marketplace for economic ideas. Though Citizens United portends an expanded role for corporate speech in political campaigns, it should not be read to require strict scrutiny for any government regulation of corporate speech. Lunch will be provided. For the paper and more information, contact Andrei Mamolea at email@example.com.
