About This Course
Free expression or the exchange of ideas has been a hallmark of American education. Yet, whether protection of free expression is obligated by the Constitution is a more complicated question and the answer may vary from public to private institution or programs within each institution.
But even where the Constitution does apply, speech is not absolute. Universities are workplaces, places of public accommodation, healthcare providers and learning centers. A myriad of laws regulate speech in these settings.
This CLE session will dive into the timely question of how we balance notions of free expression with constitutional and statutory constraints that may or may not apply.
