Investigations and the Law: What Journalists Need to Know

06:00PM - 07:00PM Virtual

Join Barbara Wall and Thomas Curley in a conversation and Q&A about what to expect from your legal team; how to work with a lawyer during the reporting process as well as after it; and what to do if your news organization doesn't have a law firm on retainer. These two legal eagles have worked on many impactful editorial projects, including the Indianapolis Star's in-depth stories on years of abuse of girls and young women training in USA Gymnastics. The conversation will be moderated by Dr. John Watson, professor of Journalism at American University’s School of Communication.
