Description

Without access to information, the press cannot do its job serving the public. Although the First Amendment says that “no law” should abridge freedom of the press, government and institutions find ways to keep secret various matters of legitimate public concern. One paper explores how federal courts have interpreted the “national security” exception to the Freedom of Information Act. Another paper analyzes state open records laws and whether they apply to private universities’ police forces. Another paper looks at sealed documents, and how journalists can legally challenge those orders and get access.
