FIRE’s first-ever Continued Legal Education (CLE) course, set to take place September 14, 2010, in New York City, has now been accredited by Pennsylvania’s Continuing Legal Education Board. Specifically, our program has been approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for 1.5 hours of substantive law, practice and procedure CLE credit. This means that the CLE course is now available for CLE credit to attorneys in Pennsylvania, in addition to attorneys in New York. We are very pleased by this development and the opportunity to offer our course to more attorneys interested in learning about FIRE’s issues.
Our CLE course, entitled "Free Speech 101: Protecting 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 campuses. Interested attorneys may register for the course online via this link, or by simply clicking the button below:
Our course is appropriate for both newly admitted and experienced attorneys. Registration costs $40, and financial aid is available. (See our course information page for more details.) Members of FIRE’s Legal Network may attend free of charge and should register by contacting FIRE.
Attorneys in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, like their peers in New York, should take advantage of this opportunity to engage in a unique, interesting, and worthwhile educational experience. At a very affordable cost, and at considerable convenience, registering for our CLE is a smart choice indeed.
