THE BOUNDARIES OF FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AND ORDER IN A DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY, The Kent State University Press, 2000

Abstract:     
Academic freedom has been identified as a concern of the First Amendment. While it is not clear whether this is a separate constitutional right, it is clear that the academic freedom of educators and institutions is firmly embedded in First Amendment jurisprudence.

The article explores the dimensions of academic freedom for students as it has been recognized by the courts. Specifically, the article is concerned with instances in which student’s expression of ideas clashes with faculty and institutional interests. This can occur in instances of censorship of student press. In doing so, the article traces the historical development of academic freedom by the Supreme Court and the litigation that has crafted its contours.
