May I suggest a book I recently read: Nat Hentoff's FREE SPEECH FOR ME,
BUT NOT FOR THEE. Enjoyed particularly Hentoff's opening chapter on HUCK

You could make use of the resources that ALA has for Banned Book Week.
I would suggest taking a look at the list of 100 most frequently
challenged books from the last decade and pull out those that are
relevant to civil liberties or law in general. My guess is that your
attorneys might be surprised and/or amused by what is there.
In case you were wondering, "To Kill a Mockingbird" is number 41.
