First Amendment Coalition and Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) present a virtual workshop on journalist shield law protections. Christine Peek and Lauren Smiley, co-chairs of the Freedom of Information Committee of SPJ NorCal, will moderate the event. Participants will learn what state and federal laws cover and what happens when the government or a private citizen uses the courts to try and unmask a confidential source or force the disclosure of unpublished newsgathering materials. Guest speakers will include media lawyers, free press advocates and journalists with relevant experience. The webinar will be from 11:30AM to 1:00 PM.
