The Pro Bono Legal Clinic offers investigative storytellers lacking legal representation the opportunity to connect with experts who can knowledgeably discuss legal challenges they are confronting. Leading attorneys in the areas First Amendment law, privacy and libel, Freedom of Information, whistleblower protection, copyright and intellectual property will be on hand. Attorneys will brief participants on case law and trends relevant to the problems that journalists and filmmakers have articulated upon registering for the clinic, and field questions from them. Attorneys have also agreed to consider representing select participants in need of counsel on an ongoing basis pro bono.
All Access pass holders receive a link via email to pre-register for the Legal Clinic. They should describe the legal challenges they are facing to ensure participating attorneys are aware of their issues. Seating is limited and available on a first-come first-served basis to those who pre-register and are confirmed to attend.
