Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we’re discussing a popular exam topic from Constitutional Law — the First Amendment. In particular, we’re looking at when, where, and how the government can regulate speech through content-neutral time, place, and manner restrictions.
In this episode we discuss:
- Situations in which the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution applies
- Public, limited public, and non-public forums
- Content-based versus content-neutral regulations
- The three-prong test for time, place, and manner restrictions for content-neutral regulation of speech
- Analyzing a hypo from the February 2012 California bar exam
Thanks for listening!
