It's What's for Lunch: Nectarines, Mushrooms, and Beef -- The First Amendment and Compelled Commercial Speech (with Kathleen M. Sullivan and James Weinstein), 41 Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review 359 (2007)


JAMES WEINSTEIN: Time for dessert, intellectual dessert. It's my

great pleasure to introduce and moderate a discussion between two of

the nation's most distinguished law professors: Kathleen Sullivan

and Robert Post. Any introduction that would do justice to their

accomplishments would take up far too much of the short time

allotted. So, by way of a very summary and incomplete introduction,

Kathleen Sullivan is the Stanley Morrison Professor of Law at

Stanford Law School where she served as dean from 1999 to 2004.

She is the author of numerous works on various aspects of

constitutional law, including, with the late Gerald Gunther, co-author

of the leading constitutional case book. Robert Post is the David

Boies Professor of Law at Yale Law School and also the author of

numerous works on constitutional law, including Constitutional

Domains, an extremely influential book on free speech. Despite

their wide-ranging interests and accomplishments in other areas of

constitutional law, I think it's fair to say that they both have written

most extensively on and have a special interest in free speech. Both

have written important articles on commercial speech, including, as

it turns out, in The Supreme Court Review. And, Robert Post's

recent article in that publication is on the subject of today's

presentation, compelled commercial speech.
