First Amendment Forum with Ashley Kissinger and Ben Lipman

Thanks to support provided by the Lerude First Amendment Endowment, this event is free and open to the public.

About the talk:
In late 2023, a Nevada Supreme Court decision protected the confidential sources and information of murdered Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Jeff German, concluding that Nevada’s “News Shield Law” applies even when a reporter is deceased. How can that case help us reflect on various legal challenges facing journalism today? Are the press’s legal protections strong enough? What legal and political forces are threatening to weaken them?
