NYU Journal of Law and Liberty Examines Issue of Off-Campus Student Speech
February 28, 2012
The New York University Journal of Law and Liberty's Law and Liberty Bulletin blog has an overview of the split among federal circuit courts concerning school regulation of off-campus student speech. The Supreme Court of the United States denied certioriari earlier this year in three cases that together might have settled the issue. An excerpt:

We would suggest not censoring your students. Check out the full post here. Kudos to my former journal for examining this important issue!
