SPLC lawyers have taught hundreds of workshops at campuses and conventions from coast to coast. We know the questions students most want answered, and the danger signs students most need to know. Our handouts, PowerPoints, quizzes and guides can help bring challenging legal lessons to life.
Presentations and Handouts: These classroom shortcuts, prepared by the SPLC's legal staff, include PowerPoint presentations -- with teachers' discussion questions -- covering the hottest media-law topics, from First Amendment law to copyright. Each topic comes with a Q-and-A handout covering the SPLC legal hotline's "greatest hits."
Test Your Knowledge - Student Press Law: An online test, plus short quizzes, will challenge anyone's understanding of libel, privacy, FOIA and other recurring media-law issues. A "must-pass" for anyone getting ready to become an editor at a college or high-school publication.
Test Your Knowledge - First Amendment: Think you understand the "Five Freedoms" like a Founding Father? Find out with this interactive, 30-question quiz testing your knowledge of essential freedoms guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.
