FIRE’s 2011 Campus Freedom Network Conference will be held July 14-16 on the campus of Bryn Mawr College, just outside of Philadelphia. The CFN Conference brings together committed students from across the country to learn from eminent First Amendment scholars and meet fellow advocates for free speech on campus. Attendees will hear from distinguished keynote speakers including Nick Gillespie, editor in chief of Reason.tv and Reason.com, and Robert Corn-Revere, a partner at the law firm of Davis Wright Tremaine in Washington, D.C., and a First Amendment expert with extensive experience in communications, media, and information technology law. Other sessions will feature a panel of students involved in previous FIRE cases, as well as FIRE staff discussing the philosophical and legal arguments for First Amendment rights on campus and how we can improve the culture of free speech at colleges and universities.
The conference is FREE, and FIRE will provide up to $300 to reimburse expenses for attendees to travel to Bryn Mawr. Space is limited, so interested students should register soon! Students can apply at thecfn.org/conference.
