Description

This workshop will focus on understanding the law of libel and defamation, as well as best practices to limit your personal and organizational risk. We will review the fundamentals of the law and engage in exercises to help illustrate what media attorneys look for when they conduct pre-publication review of your content. Reporters, photographers, documentary filmmakers, producers, editors and other managers are welcome.

This class will cover:

* The ins and outs of libel cases, including common law and constitutional defenses, privileges for opinion and using public records, and the effect of corrections, denials and using anonymous sources
* Recent trends in libel lawsuits, including lawsuits brought by the president and other public officials
* Risk analysis and red flags in the pre-publication phase
* Special legal issues relating to digital media

Note: Master classes will not be available on demand after the conference.
