The Free Speech Movement

Robert H. Cole

University of California Press

This chapter offers some reflection and recollections of the legal issues associated with the Free Speech Movement (FSM). It explains that the FSM was initially fighting for the freedom to advocate and organize off-campus actions that everyone assumed were legal or constitutionally protected, for the university had prohibited all such political activity without distinction. The chapter also provides general background of how free speech law had developed in the decades before the 1960s.

Keywords:   FSM, legal issues, off-campus actions, political activity, free speech law
