Student Rights

given discussions with some of you I wanted to share these resources

the NJ Bar puts out two publications about law for students:

The Legal Eagle: this is a general law newsletter for students 6 - 12 (horrible name, i know but has some good articles)

http://www.njsbf.org/educators-and-students/publications/legal-eagle.html

Repsect: this is a journal about law and diversity for students 6 - 12

http://www.njsbf.org/educators-and-students/publications/respect.html

Here are links to recent edition of each that I found pretty helpful (PDFs are attached as well)

The Legal Eagle (Spring 2012) had a really good piece "Can your school control what you post on the internet?" http://www.njsbf.org/images/content/1/1/11461/LegalEagleSpring%202012.pdf

Respect (Fall 2011) which had a good article on Offensive Speech and the first amendment. http://www.njsbf.org/images/content/1/1/11445/respect_fall2011_final%5B2...
