Everything online journalists need to protect their legal rights. This free resource culls from all Reporters Committee resources and includes exclusive content on digital media law issues.
The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press will host a panel discussion with judges, legal experts and journalists discussing “Today’s Supreme Court: Tradition v. Technology and Transparency” on Oct. 25, 9:30-11:00 a.m., at the National Press Club.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will focus on the real and perceived transparency gaps at the Court and how technology could be utilized to offer more insight into the Court’s proceedings – especially given the Court’s increasing power amid the growing dysfunction in American politics.
Topics will include financial disclosures, codes of conduct, recusals and whether the Court should consider video or audio live-streaming oral arguments. Panelists also will be asked about the release of opinion announcements, whether justices’ papers should be public by law, health disclosures, out-of-town appearances and improvements to the Court’s online presence.
“Today’s Supreme Court: Tradition vs. Technology and Transparency” Friday, October 25, 2013 9:30-11:00 a.m. National Press Club, Holeman Lounge 529 14th St. NW, Washington, D.C.
The event is free, but space is limited. Please register by Oct. 17 at http://www.evite.com/l/Nt2drWxmV1. Refreshments will be served.
