Media and the Law Workshop, Saturday January 28th

I thnk that this would be interesting for anyone who’s blogging professionally or involved in new media, as well as mainstream media. From the Houston Bar Association:

26th Law & the Media Program, January 28

The 2012 Law & the Media Program will explore the legal, ethical and practical implications of WikiLeaks for journalists, lawyers and the people and institutions affected by “antisecrecy vigilantes” (New York Times). The program will feature Geoffrey Robertson, the London-based lawyer for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange (via Skype) and New York Times reporter Eric Schmitt, who interviewed Mr. Assange and assessed the first trove of diplomatic cables leaked by WikiLeaks. The program also will include a panel discussion featuring Lucy Dalglish, executive director of the Reporters Committee on Freedom of the Press, Washington, D.C.; Don DeGabrielle of Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P., former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Texas; David Adler, federal criminal defense attorney; and Tom Forestier, media attorney and managing shareholder, Winstead PC.

Law & the Media is co-sponsored by the HBA, the Society of Professional Journalists and The Press Club of Houston. The program is set for Saturday, January 28, 2012, at South Texas College of Law.
