New Challenges to Freedom of Expression in Higher Education

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

Moderator for the event is: Charles D. Tobin, Media and Entertainment Law

Speakers will include: 

  • Olabisi Ladeji Okubadejo
    Higher Education

  • Mara J. Gassmann
    Media and Entertainment Law

  • Adrianna C. Rodriguez
    Media and Entertainment Law

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