Free Speech

Free Speech at College, Episode of My "Free Speech Rules" YouTube Video Series

|The Volokh Conspiracy |

Thanks to a generous grant from the Stanton Foundation, and to the video production work of Meredith Bragg and Austin Bragg at Reason.tv, I'm putting together a series of 10 short, graphical YouTube videos explaining free speech law. Our videos so far have been

  1. "7 Things You Should Know About Free Speech in Schools,"
  2. "The Three Rules of Hate Speech and the First Amendment,"
  3. "Fake News and the First Amendment,"
  4. "Who Owns Your Life Story?,"
  5. "Is Money Speech?," and
  6. "Corporations and the First Amendment."

Our seventh, which we just released, is "The Ten Rules of Free Speech and College Students":

As usual for our episodes, the full script is also posted right below the video on YouTube.

We'd love it if you

  1. Watched this.
  2. Shared this widely.
  3. Suggested people or organizations whom we might be willing to help spread it far and wide (obviously, the more detail on the potential contacts, the better).
  4. Gave us feedback on the style of the presentation, since we're always willing to change the style as we learn more.

Please post your suggestions in the comments, or e-mail me at volokh at law.ucla.edu.

Future videos in the series will likely include most of the following, plus maybe some others:

  • Speech and privacy.
  • Speech on or with government property.
  • Alexander Hamilton: free press pioneer.
