Event Details

The Institute of Information Law & Policy & The Program in Law and Journalism at New York Law School and Personal Democracy Forum are pleased to announce the next event in a series of symposiums on WikiLeaks:

WikiLeaks and the Law

While speculation about the possible prosecution of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for publishing classified information appears on the front pages of newspapers on a regular basis, this is the first such conversation among leading legal scholars and practitioners about the law's reach and potential impact. 

Introduction by:

  • Trevor Timm, Wikileaks & the law correspondent on Twitter @WLLegal

Moderated by:

  • Micah Sifry, Co-founder of Personal Democracy Forum and author of the new book WikiLeaks and the Age of Transparency
  • Yochai Benkler, Berkman Professor of Entrepreneurial Legal Studies at Harvard and faculty co-director of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society
  • James Goodale, Former General Counsel of The New York Times during the Pentagon Papers case
  • Gabriel Schoenfeld, Author of Necessary Secrets: National Security, the Media, and the Rule of Law & Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute
  • Geoffrey R. Stone, Edward H. Levi Distinguished Service Professor at University of Chicago Law School
We'll look at questions like:
  • Is Julian Assange a journalist?
  • How does Bradley Manning compare to Daniel Ellsberg?
  • How far does the First Amendment go in protecting the press when publishing classified information?
  • Can the Espionage Act apply to a publisher not based in the United States?
  • How often do newspapers publish classified information?
  • How can the government protect itself from future leaks?
  • Will leaks of this magnitude continue?
  • Is Obama going after whistleblowers?

Tickets are $10 in advance and can be purchased here. We hope you can join us for what is sure to be an enlightening discussion on Wikileaks, journalism, and First Amendment. Light refreshments will be served.
