The school has released a list of several activities planned by the faculty and administration that will be accomplished during the upcoming spring semester. The events include:
-“A speech and roundtable discussion on the principles of free speech on college campuses, led by Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the UC Irvine Law School and noted constitutional scholar.”
