. speech codes
by Jennifer Silverberg
Daily MSA Reporter
Two renowned law professors discussed the effects
of university speech codes on students, faculty and
staff, as well as First Amendment issues, at a forum at
the Law School Friday.
Approximately 200 students attended a debate be-
tween Harvard Law Professor Charles Fried and
Georgetown Law Professor Peter Byrnne which was
sponsored by the Michigan Student Assembly Student
Rights Commision and the Federalist Society - a con-
servative, libertarian Law School society.
Fried, speaking against the implementation of speech
codes, said the University interim speech code is an im-
provement over the past code, which he called defective
but harmless. He said the code was not a movement
based on free speech, but a political movement.
"What was going on was a political statement in-

within the University, and they could flex their muscles
to intimidate, impress and show just how powerful they
were in that community," Fried said.
Byrnne countered that when talking with students
and faculty, he found that speech codes are best under-

The University's Housing
Division is providing a temporary
cancellation and refund for the meal

month of the Islamic calendar - in
which the first revelation of the
Qur'an came to the prophet
Muslim students who observe the
holiday must fast for 29 or 30 days,
and need to fill out a termination
form for meal plans. Ramadan
occurs this year between March 4
and April 6.
The students can either remain
with the existing meal plan or can
temporarily cancel or modify their
existing meal plan, said University
Housing Director Alan Levy.
Students who choose to modify
their meal plan will receive 70 per-
cent of the dollar value of the num-
ber of meals canceled. The refund
can be credited either to the
student's account, or to a new or
existing Entree Plus account, Levy
Levy said students cannot get a
full refund because of other costs to
the University.
"Even if a student didn't use the
meal plan at all, only 70 percent re-
