From mconnors on Morguefile

Poynter is hosting a free webinar on Dec. 15 at 2 p.m. CT about navigating legal challenges in journalism.

Join The Center for Investigative Reporting CEO Christa Scharfenberg and general counsel Victoria Baranetsky in this interactive dialogue to discuss how reporters and news organizations can handle libel and slander suits, including an overview of the libel suit CIR has been fighting for the past four years.

The one-hour webinar will cover evolving legal developments in defamation, emerging challenges, anti-SLAPP laws and resources that journalists and organizations can use to protect themselves and their reporters in the pursuit of truth. Attendees to this free webinar will not only have the opportunity to glean insights from CIR, producers of the award-winning Reveal public radio show and podcast, but will also have ample time to pose their own questions.
