FAC Conducts Training for Lawyers to Defend Subpoenaed Journalists

On June 14, the First Amendment Coalition will conduct an in-depth training for lawyers interested in defending journalists who are subpoenaed in civil or criminal cases.  The training is part of FAC’s Subpoena Defense Initiative, which aims to meet the growing need for pro bono or reduced-rate counsel trained in the intricacies of subpoena defense to defend journalists — particularly those from the rapidly growing ranks of small, independent and nonprofit media outlets, which often lack ready access to counsel.
FAC is putting on this training in partnership with the law firm of Davis Wright Tremaine. Tom Burke of that firm, along with Karl Olson of the firm Cannata, O’Toole, Fickes and Almazan, will conduct the training session.  You can read more about it here.
