Free speech has become a hot button issue on campuses. On its face, the First Amendment seems simple—people have a legal right to say whatever they want. But in reality, free speech rights are much more nuanced and are, of course, much less absolute. CL can give your students a working knowledge of how the 1st operates on both public and private campuses including strategies and the best practices for real world situations.

Topics covered include:
The basics of First amendment law including the myriad exceptions
Professors and Free Speech including Semi-Affiliated Accounts (unofficial social media accounts maintained by professors)
Students and individual free speech rights with an emphasis in online speech
Invited outside speakers and balancing free speech with safety and other institutional concerns
Public forum speech and profanity rules and time place and manner restrictions
Free Speech vs. Free From Consequences
