The First Amendment Clinic, partnering with UGA’s Office of Legal Affairs, hosted a class on June 19, 2020 for UGA faculty and staff focusing on campus free speech issues.  Offered through UGA’s Training & Development (T&D) Center and open to any UGA employee, the class explored the legal frameworks governing speech and expression rights for students, employees and visitors.  Topic areas included forum analysis, time/place/manner restrictions, hate speech, public employee doctrine, academic freedom and heckler’s veto.  The class is will be offered again during the Fall 2020 semester.  UGA employees may register for this and other T&D classes each training quarter through the Professional Education Portal (PEP).
