One-Day Law School for Journalists
Our One-Day Law School for Journalists™ is an intensive program designed to support journalists and others in the media who face the challenge of reporting on the court system without a law degree.
Although this program was designed for journalists, it is open to all who are interested. There is no cost to participate, but attendees must register in advance in order to receive the information needed to attend.
