The purpose of the First Amendment Society is to protect the free expression of ideas in public speech and press; the free exercise of individual conscience; the wall of separation between church and state; rights to peaceable assembly and association; and rights to petition government. We intend to educate future public interest lawyers of the importance of First Amendment principles and to raise awareness of contemporary challenges to a free society.
