Authentic, reliable non-public information is at the heart of true investigative reporting. Whether sourced from a corporate whistleblower, a government employee exposing corruption, or the nosey neighbor of an elected official – all leaks collide with the law in ways that can place the journalist and their source in serious jeopardy. This panel will focus on how to effectively navigate the legal risks that attend leaks and leakers, including handling of leaked documents, publication of confidential personal information, protective measures that may be taken when faced with government or corporate leak investigations, grand jury leaks and the special risks associated with leaks of classified information. The three panel members will bring their unique experience and perspectives on leaks and the law – from the federal government, international media and major corporate legal practice – to this lively discussion about a subject that is likely to make a great deal of news in the next four years.
