Student Press Law Center fights for first amendment

Since 1974, the Student Press Law Center has been the nation’s only legal assistance agency devoted exclusively to educating high school and college journalists about the rights and responsibilities embodied in the First Amendment and supporting the student news media in their struggle to cover important issues free from censorship.

The SPLC provides a variety of resources including free legal advice and information as well as low-cost educational materials for student journalists on a wide variety of topics.

In addition, the SPLC operates a formal Attorney Referral Network of approximately 150 lawyers across the country who are available to provide free legal representation to local students when necessary.

Approximately 2,500 student journalists, teachers and others contact the SPLC each year from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
