Next Thursday, September 22, 2011, the Citizen Media Law Project at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, together with the Online News Association and the UNC Center for Media Law and Policy will present "Law School for Digital Journalists," a Pre-Conference day for the ONA’s 2011 Conference in Boston.
This intensive day of practical legal training is open to the public without registration for the full ONA conference. We will cover what digital journalists need to know about how the law impacts their profession, both on the editorial and business sides, and including basics of content liability and intellectual property law, business formation and governance issues, and newsgathering law. The day will end with a high-level plenary discussion and reception. Classes will be taught by leading media lawyers and journalism educators.
Online registration was originally set to close on September 14, 2011, but has been extended through 11:59 p.m. Friday, September 16th – so come join us!
