Students will write multiple short papers.
We will explore significant challenges to long-standing treatments of religious and speech rights in the face of social movements, such as the movement for LGBT rights, and in the face of technological change, such as the Internet. This seminar will examine several emerging issues and potential responses; U.S. federal constitutional law is the focus, but state constitutions, federal statutes, and comparative law will also provide resources.
Note: This class will not meet during the first week of classes and a makeup session will be scheduled for a later date. The first class session will be held on February 7th.
