National Constitution Center President, CEO to Speak Tuesday at Law School
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Jeffrey Rosen, president and chief executive officer of the National Constitution Center and professor at George Washington University Law School, will present "The Future of Privacy and Free Speech in the Age of Google and Facebook" at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 29, in the E.J. Ball Courtroom in Waterman Hall as part of the Hartman Hotz Lectures in Law and Liberal Arts.
Rosen is a highly regarded journalist whose essays and commentaries have appeared in the New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic Monthly and The New Yorker. He has authored five books on constitutional issues and is frequently featured on various NPR programs and We the People, a podcast from National Constitution Center.
The National Constitution Center is the first and only institution in America established by Congress to "disseminate information about the United States Constitution on a non-partisan basis in order to increase the awareness and understanding of the Constitution among the American people." The Constitution Center brings the United States Constitution to life by hosting interactive exhibits and constitutional conversations and inspires active citizenship by celebrating the American constitutional tradition.
Rosen received the 2012 Golden Pen Award from the Legal Writing Institute for his "extraordinary contribution to the cause of better legal writing." The Chicago Tribune named Rosen one of the 10 best magazine journalists in America and a reviewer for the Los Angeles Times called him "the nation's most widely read and influential legal commentator."
In addition to his roles at the National Constitution Center and George Washington University Law School, he is a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and a contributing editor for the Atlantic. He is a graduate of Harvard College; Oxford University, where he was a Marshall Scholar; and Yale Law School.
