Course detail: CONF1031 - Media and the Law Online CLE Session: From Ferguson to George Floyd to Portland: Protesters, Police, and the Journalists in the Middle

We are pleased to offer a special webinar on September 9, 2020, titled "From Ferguson to George Floyd to Portland: Protesters, Police, and the Journalists in the Middle."


 We are also currently planning the 34th Annual Media and the Law Seminar for April 15-16, 2021. We will provide additional details and registration information soon. Each year, the University of Kansas School of Law and the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association's Media Law Committee sponsor the Media and the Law Seminar in Kansas City to facilitate national dialogue about the latest legal issues and developments in media, law, and technology. For lawyers who attend, the seminar is an opportunity to identify and assess laws and court rulings that affect expressive freedom and to examine professional standards and practices for effective First Amendment advocacy. The seminar also is open to non-lawyers, including students and teachers. For them, the seminar is an opportunity to enrich their understanding of government actions and technological developments that may impede or advance citizens' exercise of their First Amendment rights.
