The university will welcome Sanford Ungar, who will answer questions on why some Americans seem to have trouble on how to define and practice free speech in the keynote address for USI’s 8th Law Day. This event will take place Apr. 8 at 7 p.m. in Carter Hall.

Ungar is the president emeritus of Goucher College and the director of the Free Speech Project at Georgetown University. This project tracks the status of free speech in education, government and civil society in the United States. Ungar is the director of the Voice of America and dean of the School of Communication at American University.

Ungar was a staff writer for the Washington Post during his early journalism career. He then became the editor of The Atlantic, where he was the managing editor of Foreign Policy magazine. Then he was the co-host of “All Things Considered” on NPR. He has written and edited six nonfiction books, including “The Papers & The Papers: An Account of the Legal and Political Battle Over the Pentagon Papers.” This book won the George Polk Award.

Before Ungar’s keynote address, the university will begin Law Day by welcoming current and prospective students, faculty, staff, alumni and the Evansville community. There, they can observe the Indiana Court of Appeals as it hears an oral argument at 11 a.m. in Carter Hall.
