Across the nation, law schools and universities are considering the critical issues surrounding the First Amendment and free speech in the context of higher education. At the UNLV Boyd School of Law, we are fortunate to have Mark Yudof, a distinguished leader in the field and in American higher education, teaching our students and hosting an annual conference at Boyd on The First Amendment on Campus. On Monday, February 25, beginning at 9:00am, we will gather in the Thomas & Mack Moot Courtroom for a discussion of these timely and critical issues. Mark Yudof brings unparalleled expertise to these questions, serving as President Emeritus and Professor of Law at Berkeley, past chancellor of University of California System of Higher Education, past president of University of Texas, and past dean of University of Minnesota Law School.
