In Thirty Years, Flynt Hasn’t Moved — the Public Has
After interviews with the infamous trial babies Casey Anthony and OJ Simpson, Fordham Law’s provocative Forum on Law, Culture & Society, Trials & Errors, has offered up for the public’s titillation and sniggering Larry Flynt, infamous for milestone cases dealing with freedom of speech, most prominently including the 1988 US Supreme Court case, Hustler Magazine v. Falwell.
The series is helmed by the deft and articulate Fordham legal scholar [John Whelan Distinguished Lecturer in Law], acclaimed author and interlocutor Thane Rosenbaum; it focuses on high-profile trials that have captured the public imagination, and oozed beyond the courtroom into wider public dialogue and debate. It takes for its bailiwick the ‘big ideas of the day,’ particularly those that present a nexus between law, justice, human rights, and civil society. Under the popular management of the Law School, series producer Joel Seidemann and program producer Beth Karas, the series has brought together public intellectuals, government leaders and influential artists in evenings that, like them or no, present a rich ambrosia of intellectual challenge.
