Regulating Speech

Regulating Speech

(p.147) 6 Regulating Speech
Adolescents, Media, and the Law

Roger J.R. Levesque

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by examining how the law regulates everyone's speech, speech for adults as well as adolescents. These analyses reveal an expanding protection of free speech rights, much of which directly involves media and informational environments. After detailing the rationales for protecting speech, it examines the key limits the Constitution places on speech. The limits are important to consider given that they provide the ultimate standard on which to judge everyone's free speech. Importantly, the chapter continues and examines often ignored aspects of free speech jurisprudence, such as the right to information.
