Freedom of the Press

A. The student press must be free of censorship, and its editors and managers must be protected from arbitrary action arising out of student, faculty, administration, alumni, or community disapproval of editorial policy or content. 

B. The tenure of editors and managers shall be determined by the regularly elected student editorial boards. Removal before the normal expiration of the term of office may be made only by the same bodies in accordance with fair and orderly procedures prescribed in advance. 

C. “Student press” means individual publications and other communication media which are managed and published primarily by duly enrolled students in the Law School and appear on a continuous basis. 

D. The “student editorial board” is the managing board of the publication itself and no other board from any other organization.
