Seminars

Husch Blackwell is participating in a big way in one of Austin’s largest and best-known events, the South by Southwest Interactive Conference (SXSW). Whether you''ll be in the Austin area during the conference or if you''ll be following the conversation on social media, we''d like to share our lineup of activities:

SXSW Edu Panel, "Finding the Balance: Freedom of Speech on Campus" – Thursday, March 8

Colleges and universities play a vital role in promoting free speech. This often means a robust expression of different viewpoints—some of which can be challenging to students and faculty. Institutions must balance their obligation to protect freedom of speech with demands to limit the expression of offensive ideas. Our panel will discuss these competing interests and how they manifest on campus, as well as strategies for protecting freedom of speech while preserving a welcoming climate.

Time 11 a.m.-12 p.m.
Venue Hilton Austin Downtown – Salon C
Moderator Derek Teeter
Panelists Dr. Krista Harrell, Associate Dean of Students and Title IX Coordinator, University of South Alabama
Dr. Kristi Kirk, Provost & Executive VP, Concordia University Texas 

SXSW Edu Luncheon – Thursday, March 8

Please join SXSW EDU panelists, Dr. Kristi Kirk (Provost & Executive VP, Concordia University Texas), Dr. Krista Harrell (Associate Dean of Students and Title IX Coordinator, University of South Alabama), and our own Derek Teeter for a luncheon to continue their SXSW EDU panel discussion "Finding the Balance: Freedom of Speech on Campus." Our Austin office is just a few blocks from SXSW EDU. We hope you can join us for both the panel discussion and lunch to follow after the session!
