About the seminars:

With the turnover in newsrooms and all the changes in the law, everyone
needs to review their rights to access people, places and institutions, review libel and privacy principles and come up to speed on all the quirky California-only laws that journalists just need to know, including new laws being considered in Sacramento right now.

At a CNPA “Rights & Risks” seminar, Moore, pictured, covers issues including basics on the California Public Records Act and the state’s open-meeting laws.

The discussion touches on libel, the use of content posted to social media, and journalists’ rights in accessing school grounds and emergency-response scenes.

Are the seminars too far for your people to attend? Consider hosting a Rights and Risks seminar at your shop. It’s free, though you’ll need to allow staffers from other area CNPA-member companies to join in.
