The First Amendment: Freedom of Speech



In stock
Book - hardbound

The First Amendment: Freedom of Speech is the latest volume in the Thomson Reuters Law for the Layperson Legal Almanac Series.

This work provides both nonattorneys (law students, clients, academics) and attorneys with a focused and coherent review of the evolution of free speech rights in the United States. Professor David L. Hudson, Jr. makes common First Amendment principles such as prior restraint, overbreadth, vagueness, fighting words, public forum, etc., easy to understand through plain-English explanations of the concepts and fact-specific descriptions of the Supreme Court rulings establishing them.

In addition to a review of free speech protections, The First Amendment: Freedom of Speech contains chapters on the various categories of unprotected speech, the special rules related to commercial speech, pornographic speech, public employee speech and student speech, as well as a chapter on how the First Amendment impacts tort law in the United States.
