Lawyers and Resistance: Free Speech, Protest, & How to Help

We have entered into an uncharted era of protest as a result of the election of a new Presidential administration.  In this new age of social media as well as live protest, what laws apply? When is protest no longer peaceful? What is the difference between free speech and hate speech? When does criminal liability for words attach? How can lawyers get involved? These and many other questions will be answered by our speakers.  

Whether you are an attorney seeking CLE credit, or just interested in learning about the state of free speech, join us Thursday, October 19, at Nova Southeastern University's Shepard Broad School of Law for Lawyers and Resistance: Free Speech, Protest, & How to Help.

This course is approved for 3.5 CLE credits. For the program agenda, speakers, and more, click here.
