About the Program in Law & Journalism:
The Program in Law & Journalism provides a forum for working journalists to learn about legal issues; for lawyers and students to learn about, critique and monitor the work of journalists; for students who are interested in legal careers at the intersection of law and journalism; and for academics whose scholarly interests may encompass both arenas. Affiliated with New York Law School’s Institute for Information Law and Policy and Center for Professional Values and Practice, the program hosts seminars, panels, and colloquia on legal issues raised by newsgathering activities, the ethics and practicalities of dealing with the media, and the role of lawyers in media and the influence of the media on lawyering.
