Mandatory disclosure is a popular form of regulation. From privacy to
healthcare, politics to “payola,” laws requiring disclosure have proliferated in
recent decades. This symposium features panel discussions by top scholars and
practitioners on why we love—or love to hate—disclosure, why it seems to never
work, and what solutions exist.
Robert Post, Dean of Yale Law School, published his provocative book,
Democracy, Expertise, and Academic
Freedom: A First Amendment Jurisprudence for the Modern Age in 2012. A panel
of noted First Amendment scholars and practitioners joined Dean Post to discuss
his theory of democratic competence and how the First Amendment can and should
protect the manner in which professionals produce expert speech.
