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.
