Attention Attorneys! FIRE’s Philadelphia CLE Two Weeks Away

November 28, 2011

In just a little over two weeks, FIRE will be holding our latest Continuing Legal Education (CLE) course for Pennsylvania attorneys: “Free Speech 101: Protecting Free Expression and the First Amendment at our Nation’s Colleges and Universities.” The two-hour course will take place on Wednesday, December 14, at the Omni Hotel at Independence Park in Philadelphia, beginning at 2 p.m.

My colleague Azhar Majeed and I will provide a comprehensive overview of the state of the law regarding free speech on campus. We’ll discuss recent legal developments and cases, answer questions about student speech rights in the social media era, and provide information about how to defend student rights from collegiate censorship.

Our course has been approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for two 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.
