First Annual Freedom of Information Day Celebration

MARCH 17
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Room 603

In the U.S., "Freedom of Information Day" is celebrated annually on March 16 (James Madison's birthday) or proximate business day, at the beginning of what is now known as "Sunshine Week." This will be the first annual program recognizing this day by WCL's new Collaboration on Government Secrecy ("CGS"), which is part of the Program on Law and Government. Arrangements have been made to "split" the 2008 anniversary with the First Amendment Center of the Freedom Forum, which will hold an event on Friday March 14, and the CGS program on Monday March 17 will be the first of "Sunshine Week." The program will cover the most important current issues in the freedom of information/international transparency/government secrecy areas. The luncheon speaker will be the Honorable Royce C. Lamberth, U.S. District Court Judge for the District of Columbia and former Chief Judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (1995-2002).

Sponsored by the Program on Law and Government Collaboration on Government Secrecy.
