Get the tools and inspiration you need to successfully fight for records at the IRE Conference in June. Jason Leopold, a self-described FOIA terrorist and a winner of this year’s IRE FOI Medal, will share his strategies and advice on how to wrangle information from recalcitrant officials. He’ll be joined by Brandon Smith, the journalist who sued the city of Chicago to release the Laquan McDonald police shooting video, and Matt Topic, the attorney who worked with Smith.

Look for it on the schedule: “David 1, Goliath 0, Fighting and Winning Open Records Battles,” on Friday, June 17.
