JEM First Amendment Project


Welcome to the First Amendment Project

The faculty and staff of the School of Journalism and Electronic Media at the University of Tennessee would like to welcome you to our First Amendment Project website!

Here you will find information about the history, culture and current state of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. We hope you find the resources on this site educational and the commentary thoughtful. Please feel free to contact us with comments or suggestions.
