Sept 1/Seattle: Student Rights: Tinker & Technology

This installment of the ACLU-WA Civil Liberties 101 CLE series marks the 40th anniversary of Tinker v. Des Moines, the landmark Supreme Court ruling for student rights. Speakers include ACLU-WA Cooperating Attorney Christian Halliburton, who is an Associate Professor at Seattle University School of Law.

Though youths don't have the full rights of adults, they still enjoy fundamental constitutional guarantees. Learn about the kinds of restrictions on student activities that public schools may enforce and the kinds of restrictions which are not constitutionally permitted, particularly in an increasingly technological society. For instance, may the school discipline a student for criticizing the principal on Facebook off-campus and outside of school hours? Find out how attorneys are working to challenge improper limits on student rights, including the freedoms of speech, assembly and protection from unreasonable search.

Co-sponsored by the ACLU-WA Student Club at Seattle University School of Law.
