Paul Horwitz, Gordon Rosen Professor of Law, recently participated in a podcast for the Federalist Society regarding his book, First Amendment Institutions. Professor Horwitz suggests institutions that exercise their 1st amendment freedoms should have a certain level of autonomy from the state. Horwitz believes that such an approach would enhance these institutions’ role in social and political life, thus making the state a part of our social framework, as opposed to an overbearing sovereign.
