Street Law Professional Development Workshop:
The First Amendment and Social Media

Feb. 28-29, 2024

High school social studies teachers (public, private and parochial) are invited to attend this workshop, focused on the federal court system, foundational constitutional concepts, and engaging current issues!

The First Amendment guarantees Americans freedom of speech. But how exactly does that apply to social media? Explore this important question with legal experts from the federal courts, participate in case study activities, and apply what you have learned in a moot court of a case currently before the U.S. Supreme Court, O’Connor-Ratcliff v. Garnier.

The 2024 Street Law Professional Development Workshop will be held at the Christopher S. Bond U.S. Courthouse in Jefferson City, MO.



Registration is now open and will close on February 2, 2024.

You will be notified of acceptance by Feb 6.
