LMU’S LOYOLA LAW SCHOOL WRITES — The Civil Justice Program at Loyola Law School, Los Angeles will host its 13th-annual Journalist Law School from Wednesday, June 6-Saturday, June 9, 2018 on its Frank Gehry-designed campus in downtown Los Angeles. The application deadline is Friday, Feb. 9, 2018. Apply or learn more at www.journalistlawschool.org.
The fellowship condenses core law-school subjects and break-out topics into a long weekend filled with courses taught by law professors, judges and prominent attorneys. 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 about 450 reporters, editors and producers from a wide range of local, national and international news organizations.
There is no cost to journalists to attend the fellowship. Instruction, lodging and most meals are included. The Journalist Law School will cover half of travel expenses up to $300. Fellows will be housed at the nearby Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
Please see www.journalistlawschool.org for more information and to apply. If you have questions about the program, please let me know.
