Free Speech on Campus LAW-620

This course is for law students who have not necessarily studied First Amendment law but are interested in thinking about the new and growing number of issues involving free speech that have arisen in recent years on university campuses.  For generations, controversies over free expression have rocked campuses across the United States, and yet the law governing the resolutions of these matters remains highly controversial and unsettled. Through a series of case studies, this course explores how the First Amendment’s guarantees of freedom of expression play out in colleges and universities. Readings consist of court decisions, theories, and commentary
