CROSS-BORDER LEGAL THREATS TO PRESS FREEDOM 
Thursday, September 19, 2019

Stories on migration at the southern U.S.
 border have taken the world by storm — as have multinational investigative reports on the Panama Papers and similar stories. Weak legal protections for press freedom in one country can spill into others. In this panel, legal experts and journalists will explore the ways that laws in other countries, like the Official Secrets Act in the United Kingdom, which expressly punishes journalists for publishing government secrets, can chill reporting here. The panel will be moderated by Dale Cohen, director
 of the Documentary Film Legal Clinic at the UCLA School of Law, with opening remarks by the school’s dean, Jennifer Mnookin. Lorenzo Soria, president of the HFPA, will deliver the closing remarks.

Moderator: Dale Cohen
