Corinne McCann Trainor will speak on a panel at Monmouth County's 2019 Law Day Celebration addressing the intersection between the First Amendment, common law torts and New Jersey statutory law. She will explain how certain acts of verbal or written speech can result in civil liability, notwithstanding the First Amendment’s promise of freedom of speech.

The panel is one of three educational presentations about the First Amendment that will be delivered to students in Grades 6-12 by members of the Monmouth County bar and bench.
