Along with traveling to various campuses to speak about First Amendment issues, Robert has represented FIRE on The O’Reilly Factor, CNN Tonight, Stossel, Fox and Friends, and Lou Dobbs Tonight, in national and international radio and TV interviews, and in op-eds in The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The Washington Post, and TIME, as well as the New York Post, Boston Globe, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Reason, National Review, and many other newspapers and magazines. He is a member of the bar in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Florida. Robert and his family live in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina, home to the Duke Blue Devils and several other, lesser intercollegiate athletic teams.

February’s topic will be “Restoring Campus Rights in North Carolina and Across the Nation”

A general outline of how speech restrictions work on campuses, how schools in North Carolina and nationally fare when it comes to protecting our rights, and the controversies we have see lately on campus and what they mean.
A discussion of Title IX and how it interacts with speech and the disciplinary processes on college and university campuses.
