Loyola Law School to hold its 12th annual Journalist Law School June 7, 2017 through Saturday, June 10, 2017

The Civil Justice Program at Loyola Law School, Los Angeles will host journalists selected for Fellowships at its 12th annual Journalist Law School program Wednesday, June 7, 2017 through Saturday, June 10, 2017 at its campus in downtown Los Angeles. Fellows will study condensed core law-school subjects and participate in “break-out topics” programs. The faculty consists of law professors, judges and prominent attorneys.

There is no cost to journalists selected to participate as fellows. Instruction, lodging and most meals are included. The Journalist Law School will cover half of travel expenses up to $300. Participants will be housed at the nearby Hilton Checkers in downtown Los Angeles.

The application deadline is Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2017. The application and other details are available at www.journalistlawschool.org.

Fellows have the opportunity to suggest and select sessions based on their areas of interest. This year, faculty planners expect to focus on issues related to the presidential transition, intersection of technology and the law, and other legal topics frequently occupying news headlines.

Journalists with at least three years of experience who cover the law in some fashion are encouraged to apply. Journalist fellows, who are competitively selected, receive a certificate of completion at the end of the four-day program. JLS alumni include almost 400 reporters, editors and producers from a wide range of local, national and international news organizations.
