First Amendment Center

Developed in conjunction with Vanderbilt University, this site features excellent research coverage of key First Amendment issues and topics; along with a library of related materials and analyses provided by legal specialists who deal with the five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment. The research materials available here are organized (appropriately enough) under the freedoms articulated by the First Amendment, including speech, press, religious liberty, assembly and petition. Within each of these broad thematic areas, there are a number of subtopics, such as free speech on public college campuses, workplace religious liberty, blue laws, and the rights of prisoners. One particularly nice feature is the inclusion of the "State of the First Amendment" survey reports, which have been conducted since 1997. Within this section, visitors can view the entire report, and also take a look at additional documents archived here, such as the 2002 report on "Comedy and Freedom of Speech." This site will certainly be of great interest to legal scholars, or those with an incipient interest in issues surrounding the First Amendment.
