Help for investigative journalists over legal issues

The Online Media Legal Network (OMLN) is collaborating with an association of investigative reporters, the Investigative News Network (INN) to provide pro bono and low-cost legal help. INN members will have access to  the services of over 100 law firms and law school clinics with lawyers specializing in media law, intellectual property law and business advising.

“Investigative and public service journalism is under threat, not just from declining revenue streams but also from government and other powerful institutions that use the law to avoid public accountability,” said David Ardia, OMLN director. -db
