Media Lawyering with David McCraw of The New York Times

Next Monday (March 11th) in SLB 122, we’re hosting a 12:10 panel/lunch talk on media lawyering and the First Amendment. 

We’ll have David McCraw, who is the lead newsroom litigator for The New York Times, in conversation with Professor David Schulz, who leads the YLS Media Freedom and Information Access Clinic. Please RSVP here so we can order the right amount of food!

David McCraw has been involved litigation surrounding many of the Times’ most impactful stories, from Wikileaks to #MeToo to Donald Trump’s taxes. He also litigates all of the FOIA cases for The New York Times and serves as their crisis response manager when journalists are kidnapped/detained overseas. We expect him to discuss the challenges of high-stakes media litigation as well as the changing First Amendment landscape.
