Alaska Bar-Dershowitz

Alan Dershowitz speaks to reporters at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2020, two days before his client, President Donald Trump, was acquitted by the U.S. Senate on impeachment charges brought by the House.

Two of the nation's best known legal scholars will discuss university censorship in an online event Wednesday evening, put on by the Colorado-based Steamboat Institute.

Jillian Melchior, an editorial page writer for The Wall Street Journal, will moderate the discussion between Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz and Robert Post, the former dean and current professor at Yale Law School.

The free event is from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

"On university campuses across America, conflicts often arise over whether it is ever appropriate for universities to limit the speech of faculty or students," the Steamboat Institute said in its announcement. "This conflict may arise over political expression, academic research and writing, invitations issued to certain speakers, and many other situations."

The lawyers will meet in person in front of an audience at The Dome at AMG in Greenwood Village.
