Free speech has been in the news in a big way this week. Between the NFL protests, to Trump’s less-than-diplomatic comments regarding said protests, to Berkeley’s canceled “free speech” week, we’ve been hearing about the First Amendment and free speech a lot. But apparently, a study on college students shows that no one understands the First Amendment (although the validity of this study has been debated). This post is designed to give you an overview of the tradition of free speech and the First Amendment, so (at the very least) you don’t sound like an idiot on Facebook.
One of the best things about the LSAT is that you don’t really have to remember any substantive information. Sure, you have to learn some techniques to answer questions, but you don’t have to know any legal facts (and believe me, once you take the bar exam, you’ll truly appreciate how wonderful that difference is).
And yet, many recent LSATs have had Reading Comprehension passages on the law and legal processes.
