MAKE NO LAW: The 1st Amendment  and You.

Course Description:
What are the historical roots of the First Amendment? What societal functions does the First Amendment serve? Which of these functions are most important? Is the free speech clause absolute? Does the mandate that Congress shall make "no law" mean NO law? Should an individual’s free speech, freedom of press, association or religious interests be balanced against government interests?  What are the current issues in the First Amendment law and what impact will technology have on First Amendment issues? We will draw upon the multidisciplinary class makeup of our class to read, study and present on those cases.
