- First, it’s being moved to Newark. The new location is Room 395 of Rutgers Law School (Newark campus), 123 Washington St.
- Second, the event is free, but registration is still required so as to maintain a head count for the purposes of food (lunch is still being provided) and room capacity.
Everything else remains the same. The event runs from 11-2 p.m. and will feature the Rutgers Institute for Information Policy and Law’s News Law Project, a database of frequently asked questions about media law, as well as two panel discussions on media law: one to address current concerns, the other looks at issues that are emerging as a result of new technology such as drones and police body cameras. Speakers include The Record’s in-house counsel Jennifer Borg; the New Jersey Press Association’s attorney Tom Cafferty; Mickey Osterreicher, general counsel to the National Press Photographers Association; and Mike Rispoli, director of The Free Press, an advocacy organization that focuses on press freedoms.
The program is co-sponsored by NJ-SPJ, the Rutgers Institute for Information Policy & Law (RIIPL), the New Jersey Press Association and the Center for Cooperative Media at Montclair State. Click here to register. This is a good one! Don’t miss it.
