By on September 9, 2010

A friendly reminder to attorneys in New York and Pennsylvania that time is very quickly running out to register for FIRE’s first-ever Continuing Legal Education (CLE) course. Our CLE will be offered next Tuesday, September 14, 2010 in New York City from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

The course, entitled "Free Speech 101: Protecting Free Expression and the First Amendment at our Nation’s Colleges and Universities," will provide a comprehensive analysis of the state of free speech protections as they pertain to college campuses. The course will focus on campus speech codes, recent developments in speech code litigation, and college administrators’ responses to judicial rulings. The course will be taught by FIRE’s Will Creeley and Azhar Majeed and will confer CLE benefits for members of both the New York and the Pennsylvania bars. A detailed description of the course and its instructors can be found here.

In accordance with the requirements of the New York State CLE Board, the course has been approved for 2 credit hours in "Areas of Professional Practice." The Pennsylvania CLE Board also approved the course for 1.5 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.
