Law and Media Panel Discussion—"Covering Scandals"—April 1


The Yale Law School Law and Media Program will hold its launch event on Tuesday, April 1—a panel discussion titled “Covering Scandals: Investigative Reporters, Their Lawyers, and the Process of Breaking Controversial News.” The event, which is open to the public, will be held at 4:30 p.m. in Room 127. A reception will follow in the Alumni Reading Room.

An award-winning panel of experts, noted for having broken such stories as the Mark Foley/congressional page scandal and the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal, will examine the process of investigating, editing, vetting, and reporting high profile stories. The panelists are:

--Brian Ross, Chief Investigative Correspondent, ABC News
--John Zucker, Senior Vice President, Law & Regulation, ABC News
--Jeff Leen, Investigations Editor, The Washington Post, and
--Eric Lieberman, Vice President and General Counsel, The Washington Post.

Their topics will include the intersection of law and journalism, ethical and legal obligations, and the roles attorneys and reporters play in reporting controversial news.
