RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) has released the latest version of its "Guide to Free Speech on Campus." The new publication looks at First Amendment issues with special attention to the digital era, including state and federal case law about securing students' right to freely express themselves. 

 
"It should inspire students and faculty to exercise their free speech rights vigorously and to defend freedom of speech for every member of the campus community," said Nadine Strossen in an announcement about the new edition. Strossen is Professor of Law at New York Law School, former President of the American Civil Liberties Union (1991–2008), and member of FIRE's Board of Editors. 
"With fresh examples relevant to today's college campus, the Guide draws from historical, legal, and practical sources to arm its readers with the knowledge needed to promote the freedom, meaningful debate, and openness upon which our society depends for its continuing vitality."
 
FIRE is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to defending and sustaining rights at America's colleges and universities. These rights include freedom of speech, legal equality, due process, religious liberty, and sanctity of conscience., 2012.
