Teaching Materials

Award-winning teacher and respected author of several volumes, Professor Laura Little has written a new book on the First Amendment. Following the proven Examples and Explanations format, the book covers all of the amendment’s major topics – with emphasis on speech and religion. Professor Little presents hypothetical examples that range from simple and straightforward to complex and rich. As a result, students using the book can acquire both basic and advanced knowledge of First Amendment doctrine. Equally important, this approach allows students the opportunity to practice their skill of marshalling arguments on many sides of contested legal issues.  

With its short chapters, the book is an exceptionally useful complement to any of the available casebooks in the field.

Highlights of this E&E study aid (first edition):

  • Professor Little brings her characteristically clear writing style and constitutional law expertise to the subject.
  • The book’s organization enables students to choose the particular topics they need to study and that match the coverage of their course.
  • The topics covered include a comprehensive review of the most recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions on speech, association, and religion as well as cutting edge issues raised by current events, including the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • The concise explication of legal doctrine (and its uncertainties) ensure a baseline of student understanding and maximizes accessibility to difficult, abstract concepts.
  • The book’s balance between simple and complex hypotheticals serves an array of student needs.
  • While providing deep coverage of abstract concepts, the book includes many practical introductions to law practice reality. Professor Little has not only established her reputation as a constitutional scholar, but also comes to the subject with experience as a practicing First Amendment lawyer for the media.

Professors and students will benefit from:

  • Adaptable organization allows the book to complement any casebook.
  • Figures, examples, explanations, and varying difficulty in the presented material ensure that the book will serve the needs of a variety of users and will appeal to different learning styles.
