“Free Speech Rules” Project Releases New Video on First Amendment and College Campuses

November 4, 2019


Latest in Series of Videos that Educate Students, Public on the Legal Rules that Define the Freedom of Speech

Los Angeles (November 4, 2019) – Free Speech Rules, a project of UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh, has released its latest video explaining free speech law for schoolchildren, college students, and adults.  This video, “Free Speech and College Students,” explains the rules of free speech on college campuses, and is available at the project’s website FreeSpeechRules.org.

The Free Speech Rules project is a series of short, graphical videos that explain the legal precedents on free speech and the free press. Past videos have covered, among other topics:

“We constantly hear stories about free speech on college campuses,” said Volokh, one of the nation’s leading experts on First Amendment law.  “But most people don’t know the First Amendment rules that courts have set forth to deal with this question, or with other important free speech questions. In this short video, we try to explain the law in a clear, honest, concise, and visual way.”

The project, ten videos in total, is funded by the Stanton Foundation. Future videos will cover:

  • Free Speech and Privacy
  • Free Speech on Government Property
  • Alexander Hamilton, Free Speech Pioneer

Eugene Volokh is the Gary T. Schwartz Distinguished Professor of Law at the UCLA School of Law and the founder of the popular legal affairs blog The Volokh Conspiracy.
