First Amendment Doctrine and the Burger Court, 68 CALIF. L. REV. 422 (1980)
In the decade since the Burger Court took over from the Warren
Court there has been little change in the position that the system of
freedom of expression occupies in our national life. Freedom of expression
continues to be accepted as the core of our structure of individual
rights. It remains the foundation of our efforts to obtain the
proper balance between individual liberty and collective responsibility.
And it still provides the framework within which our society tries to
achieve necessary, nonviolent, social change.
