President Lawrence to be featured on freedom of expression panel

Brandeis President Fred Lawrence will be featured on a panel examining the limits of freedom of expression at the University of Houston Law Center.

The Nov. 18 program, hosted by the law center and the Southwest Regional Anti-Defamation League, will examine “Extremism in a Civilized Society” and will focus on freedom of expression and whether limits on free expression should be imposed.

Lawrence, who serves on the Anti-Defamation League’s national board of directors, is an expert on civil rights law, free expression and hate crime. He has lectured internationally and testified before Congress on hate crime.

Erwin Chemerinsky, an expert on constitutional law and the founding dean of the University of California School of Law, will also speak.
