Join Professors RonNell Andersen Jones (University of Utah College of Law) and Lyrissa Lidsky (Dean, University of Missouri School of Law) for a lively discussion about how we might approach issues of press freedom at a time of new challenges and significant change to the media landscape, along with a special conversation for law students about joining academia from underrepresented law schools.
Topics to be discussed: - Major defamation cases happening right now and their implications. - How these cases relate to incitement. - The U.S. Supreme Court’s (and other branches of government) vilification of the press (perhaps in the context of Judge Silberman’s recent dissent). - How does/should press partisanship affect how we view these cases and issues. - Issues related to post-truthism and what constitutes “the press.” - ALSO - Breaking Into Academia from the Non-Traditional Law Schools, with the opportunity to answer student questions Moderated by Professor Steven Collis (Texas Law).
