Adjunct Professor Michelle Zierler
The Program in Law and Journalism has launched a blog, “Legal As She Is Spoke” (LASIS), which at least at the moment is the only online (and perhaps offline) publication devoted to critiquing legal journalism. LASIS will operate as a newsroom, with students responsible for writing for and managing the publication, under the supervision of Professors Zierler and Lieberman. The blog is intended to be active, with multiple stories posted weekly.
Journalism: Legal Reporting I (Fall) - A prerequisite for LR II, III, and IV. Students learn the basics of journalism and writing while contributing to LASIS.
Journalism: Legal Reporting II -(Spring) Students take on more autonomy, choosing their own story ideas, and working on longer term projects.
Advanced Legal Reporting I (Fall) - Students take on staff positions and mentor students in Journalism Legal Reporting I. Contributions in writing also required.
Advanced Legal Reporting II (Spring) - Students take on staff positions and mentor students in Journalism Legal Reporting I. Contributions in writing also required.
Students seeking to graduate as an Associate in Law
and Journalism must take all 4 semesters of Journalism Legal Reporting and
Advanced Legal Reporting, and electives as set out on the PLJ Website.
Graded with letter grade.
