This Wednesday, September 29, the Center for Inquiry at Michigan State University (MSU) will host Azhar Majeed, FIRE’s Associate Director of Legal and Public Advocacy, on the second leg of his Midwest speaking tour.

The restrictive e-mail policy used to punish Spencer earned MSU a spot on FIRE’s Red Alert List of the worst violators of free speech on campuses in the United States. Peter Bonilla brought this policy to the attention of MSU’s student groups last week; read his e-mail about the situation here.
The lecture will take place at 7:30 pm in the Erickson Kiva (103 Erickson Hall).

FIRE Continuing Legal Education Course

2:00 PM

"Free Speech 101: Protecting Free Expression and the First Amendment at our Nation’s Colleges and Universities"
December 10, 2010 — 2 p.m.
Omni Hotel at Independence Park
401 Chestnut Street
Philadelphia, PA 19106
FIRE is pleased to offer a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) course on December 10, 2010 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
This course, entitled "Free Speech 101: Protecting Free Expression and the First Amendment at our Nation’s Colleges and Universities," has been approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for 2 hours of substantive law, practice and procedure CLE credit. The course is appropriate for both newly admitted and experienced attorneys. Registration costs $40, and financial aid is available. Members of FIRE’s Legal Network may attend free of charge.
Alternatively, please send your name and a check for $40 made out to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education to:
ATTN: Continuing Legal Education
Foundation for Individual Rights in Education
600 Walnut Street, Suite 510
Philadelphia, PA 19106
Course Description
"Free Speech 101: Free Expression and the First Amendment at our Nation’s Colleges and Universities" will provide an in-depth examination of the state of the law on freedom of speech on today’s college campus. The course will discuss the decades of precedent from the Supreme Court and lower courts upholding First Amendment protections on college campuses, emphasizing the primacy of free speech and academic freedom in higher education, and designating the university campus as peculiarly the "marketplace of ideas," where unfettered expression creates informed citizens and ultimately contributes to the health of our democracy.
The course will examine the fact that in spite of this judicial clarity, colleges and universities continue to maintain speech codes-university regulations prohibiting expression that would be constitutionally protected off-campus-denying students and faculty the right to free speech. Courts have without exception struck down these regulations as unconstitutional, yet colleges and universities across the country continue to maintain these unlawful and illiberal prohibitions on speech.
Attorneys participating in the course will be provided a useful overview of recent developments in the law in this field. They will also gain a greater understanding of the ways in which litigation can be utilized to protect the rights of university students and faculty and how they can become involved in such efforts.
