Law School for Digital Journalists

  • Thursday
  • 9:15 am
  • Grand Ballroom B, Garden Room AB


A full day of practical training, taught by leading experts on digital media law, presented in conjunction with the UNC Center for Media Law & Policy, the Stanford Law School Center for Internet & Society and the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. This is a course, not a series of panels. Classes will cover the full range of legal issues that impact the professional lives of digital journalists: copyright, newsroom law, international media law, access and FOIA, and the legal issues involved in launching and running a digital news operation. The day will conclude with a plenary session dedicated to discussing how freedom of speech and freedom of the press are changing in a digital world. Lunch and a networking cocktail reception are also included.
