About this Event

Defending the Subpoenaed Journalist is a legal seminar covering essentials of DC, Maryland and Virginia shield law protections — or lack thereof — and developments in the law as it relates to journalists and their confidential sources and unpublished materials. Hear from leading media lawyers, Laura Handman of Davis Wright Tremaine; James McLaughlin, deputy general counsel for the Washington Post; David Bralow of First Look Media; and nationally acclaimed journalist James Risen, who was the target of an aggressive multi-year effort to unmask sources. This free training (CLE) is part of the First Amendment Coalition's Subpoena Defense Initiative, which aims to build a network of qualified counsel to pair with journalists when the need arises, an initiative supported by the Press Freedom Defense Fund of First Look Media.
