Description

This title is organized for a course centered on the leading thinkers in the tradition: John Milton, James Madison, John Stuart Mill, Learned Hand, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Louis Brandeis, and Alexander Meiklejohn. The full range of contemporary First Amendment issues and doctrines is studied by means of exploring the assumptions, implications, insights, and shortcomings of the classic arguments and landmark cases. The modern trend in favor of a more individual-centered and expansive understanding of the freedom of speech is explored in the last chapter of the casebook, with reference to a number of recent Supreme Court decisions.
