Free stuff: Teacher Guide on Court Access
August 25, 2021
For your consideration, this free, 27-page guide provides an overview of the First Amendment right to observe hearings and trials and obtain records about civil and criminal cases, with a look at some of the major Supreme Court rulings that have shaped this right.
The guide is an educational tool that can be incorporated into courses on media law, journalism, history and politics.
It was a joint effort of the First Amendment Coalition and First Amendment Watch.
