The American Bar Association is seeking proposals--papers,discussions, workshops--for sessions at an upcoming law-related education conference, scheduled March 3-5, 2011, in Chicago. The conference theme is "Civility and Free Expression in a Constutional Democracy," and will explore the importance of balancing civility and freedom of expression, and the role that they play in a constitutional democracy. When does civility constructively regulate and constrain free expression? When might civility unduly restrict free expression necessary for the health of constitutional democracy? What are the implications for the rule of law? Can civility be enforced or legislated? Proposals are sought from law-related and civic educators, legal professionals, and scholars in law and the humanities that will explore the connections among law, civility, and democracy.
