This book includes papers from the First Amendment Discussion Forum and the Defamation Discussion Forum, which focused on two topics: the intersection between freedom of expression and criminal law and the evolving nature of defamation law. The free speech papers examine a variety of important and interesting issues: advocacy of illegal action (from both U.S. and Hungarian perspectives); justifications for criminalizing sexual speech; character evidence; and violent videos and the protection of juveniles.

The Global Papers Series involves publications of papers by nationally and internationally prominent legal scholars on a variety of important legal topics, including administrative law, freedom of expression, defamation and criminal law.  The books in this series present the work of scholars from different nations who bring diverse perspectives to the issues under discussion.
