This session is sponsored by Robert R. McCormick Foundation

This session will leave you equipped to know what risks any journalist may face through the process of creating news, from newsgathering to publication to user-generated comments and content. Under what circumstances can you record a conversation, or take a photo or video? What rights do you have to protect your sources or publish leaked documents? Under what circumstances can law enforcement officials access your data or records? We’ll discuss best practices to help journalists and their parent organizations minimize risk.
