29th Annual Florida Bar Reporters’ Workshop
September 24, 2018 @ 8:00 am - September 25, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Each fall, The Florida Bar Media and Communications Law Committee presents a two-day event for print, TV, radio and online journalists new to the courts and legal beats or new to Florida. Topics include: covering high-profile cases, public records and Florida’s open government laws, libel law and defamation, lawyer regulation, and other current and relevant issues surrounding legal reporting. Reporters secure one of the available workshop slots through nominations from editors, news directors or publishers. For more than a decade, the Florida Supreme Court has hosted workshop sessions, and a highlight of the event is the reception and dinner with the justices on the 22nd floor of the Capitol. Scholarships cover the cost of lodging and meals for the reporters.
The 29th Annual Florida Bar Reporters’ Workshop will be held in Tallahassee on Sept. 24-25, 2018.
