In the United States, Freedom of Information Day is celebrated on or near the March 16 birthday of James Madison, considered the "Founding Father of Freedom of Information," as part of what during recent years has become known as "Sunshine Week." This program is the seventh annual celebration of Freedom of Information Day held by the law school's Collaboration on Government Secrecy and this year it extends Sunshine Week among related activities by media and public interest groups. Leading experts will discuss matters of current importance to the openness-in-government community, including in a "legislative outlook" session featuring key congressional staff from all corners of Capitol Hill.
