SPJ NorCal To Host Shield Law panel at UC Berkeley Journalism School — July 23

SPJ NorCal’s Freedom of Information Committee is hosting a workshop on California’s Shield Law.

When: Tuesday, July 23 at 6:30pm

Where: UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism

Come learn about what the law does and doesn’t cover, as well as examples of how it has been applied with real-world cases. The recent detention and search and seizure of freelance stringer Bryan Carmody has prompted discussions about the Shield Law among local officials and law enforcement alike; it’s time for journalists to come together and do the same. Working journalists and students are invited to attend.
