Freedom of Speech, Press, and Assembly
What sort of communicative activities are actually covered and specifically protected by the Constitution? What is a public forum? What is the clear and present danger test for political free speech? How are the courts grappling with a definition for obscenity? What are the rights of the press? What is commercial speech? When does the right to privacy overrule the right to free press? Are picket lines the same as demonstrations? These are just a few of the questions students will think about as they study how the Supreme Court has responded to these issues over the past century.
