Press Law and Democracy Project

In an ever-changing digital media world where every citizen can create content and new forms of storytelling emerge regularly, the definition of “the press” is evolving. The Press Law & Democracy Project focuses on the promotion, protection and study of the free press clause of the First Amendment in a 21st century context. Predicated on the idea that democracy only thrives with a free and vibrant press and an engaged and informed citizenry, the Press Law & Democracy Project will pursue original research and provide outreach and resources to those who wish to better understand the brave new world of digital media through a legal understanding of the First Amendment guarantee to a “free press.”

Co-directed by Amy Reynolds and Eric Robinson
