OSCAR Nominations: ConLaw Perspectives
Have a constitutional law perspective on the best-picture nominee and blockbuster Avatar?

Thanks for a very timely entry. I teach a Con Law course to undergraduates here at Babson, and the topic for today's class -- in a couple of hours, actually -- is prior restraint and sedition.
