Join me on December 2 for a discussion inspired by the Neshaminy High School newspaper controversy. This Constitution Conversation sponsored by My Daily Constitution will focus on the free speech rights of high school students and the government’s power to regulate that speech.
The dispute began when student editors of the Playwickian newspaper decided last year not to print the term "Redskin" in reference to the school's sports teams. Since then, the controversy has been the subject of extensive local and national media coverage. At our conversation, we’ll discuss the law underpinning the controversy, including the U.S. Supreme Court’s decisions in Tinker v. Des Moines, Hazelwood v. Kuhlmeier, and West Virginia v. Barnette.
Best of all, attendees can take home a free copy of the U.S. Constitution courtesy of My Daily Constitution.
Tuesday Dec 2
6 - 8 PM
Levittown Branch, Bucks County Public Library

Tomorrow afternoon, I'm scheduled to teach a continuing legal education seminar entitled "Fundamentals of New Jersey Residential Landlord-Tenant Practice." Much of what I teach in the seminar comes from practical experience I gained as a legal services attorney representing people in landlord-tenant disputes. I won't say that I've seen it all, but I've seen a lot: landlords who lease illegal apartments unfit for human habitation; government agencies that often miss the mark in providing services; and, yes, some tenants who are bound and determined to game the system.
The seminar runs from 4 to 8 p.m. at Rutgers Law School in Camden, NJ, and seats are still available. If you're interested, click on the link above to register, and be sure to stop by and introduce yourself during the break.
