“Getting the Most Out of City Hall and Police,” “Accessing Government Databases” and “Getting the Most Out of Court and County Files” are three workshops offered as part of the Annual Free Speech and Open Government Assembly, Oct. 17-18, at UC Berkeley. Other topics include:
- • International Censorship of the Internet;
• Challenges to Ethnic Media’s Editorial Independence;
• And, an assessment of the distinct, yet symbiotic, roles of new and “mainstream” media in coverage of the presidential elections.
The assembly brings together leaders in law, journalism and public policy to discuss First Amendment issues. Although admission is free, you need to register online to be assured of a space.
