William T. McGrath authors monthly column;
I recently had the good fortune to audit a short course titled The First Amendment Confronts New Technology, taught by professor Michael P. Seng of The John Marshall Law School. The irony is that the course was being presented in China, a country not known as a wellspring of free expression.
The course was taught to American students on a summer abroad program in Beijing, so we did not gain any insights into what a typical Chinese law student would think about the First Amendment. But Beijing certainly presents an interesting venue for thinking about the First Amendment.
