The First Amendment Encyclopedia

Presented by the John Seigenthaler Chair of Excellence in First Amendment Studies


This is an index page of First Amendment encylopedia entries on issues, legal terms and doctrines, laws, people, events, controversial events and churches, organized around topics.

Clicking on any topic will produce a list of encyclopedia entries around that topic.

For example, clicking on the topic "Issues Related to Speech, Press, Assembly, or Petition" yields more than 100 encyclopedia entries, organized alphabetically from "Abortion Protests" to "Whistleblowers."
