Journalists invited to apply for Media Law School 2018 fellowships

Working journalists are invited to apply for fellowships to attend Media Law School 2018, to be held Sept. 19-22 in Columbia, S.C., at the University of South Carolina.

Media Law School is an intensive seminar that teaches journalists about criminal law and procedure with a focus on how to more effectively cover trials and the judicial process. Sessions are led by the university’s law and journalism faculty and practicing attorneys and judges.

Approximately 30 fellowships in the amount of $400 each are available to cover travel costs to and from Columbia. In addition, lodging and most meals are provided. There is no fee to apply. Fellowship applications are due by Aug. 20. For more information and to apply, visit the Media Law School website.

In its third year, the Media Law School has drawn journalists from a variety of news organizations and all U.S. regions. It is presented by the university’s School of Law and College or Information and Communications. It is sponsored by the American Board of Trial Advocates.
