Join us at Harvard Law School on Thursday, September 22, for a full day of unprecedented immersion in the legal challenges facing digital journalists.

The Online News Association, Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, and the UNC Center for Media Law and Policy present Law School for Digital Journalists, part of the Pre-Conference day at ONA’s 2011 Conference & Awards Banquet, September 22-24 in Boston. This intensive day of practical legal training will cover what digital journalists need to know about how the law impacts their profession, both on the editorial and business sides. Classes will be taught by leading media lawyers and journalism educators.

With so much to cover, we plan to run parallel tracks during the day so that if you miss a key session in the morning, you can catch it in the afternoon.

Registration is open to the public.
