Following a string of widely publicized, polarizing events on college campuses – including violence, intimidation, threats, and counter-threats – college administrators and their counsel are facing unique challenges. Finding the balance between the First Amendment rights of students, faculty, and invited speakers, and maintaining a safe and respectful environment for the campus community, has never been more difficult.

Ballard Spahr invites you to attend a webinar presented by lawyers from both our First Amendment and Higher Education practice groups, who will discuss timely issues such as:

  • Applying the First Amendment in public and private education
  • Protest rallies, incitement, and true threats
  • Student speech
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Faculty speech
  • Liability for college publications

Additional information about the remaining programs for the 2018 series and registration links for future programs will be posted regularly here.
