"Bong Hits 4 the Constitution:
Free Speech Rights of Students Today"

Lowell Bergman
Reva and David Logan Professor of Investigative Reporting

"Lots of Talk and No Action:
Free Speech in the New Millennium"
Shouting on television, a tidal wave of information, a cacophony of bloggers. Is this what the Free Speech Movement had in mind?

“Is Everyone a Journalist Now?”
Anyone with access to a program like Movable Type can publish to a worldwide audience. What are the legal implications?
