Media and the Law Roundtable

The Media and the Law Rountable, co-sponsored by the University of Georgia School of Law, UGA College of Journalism and Mass Communication, and the American Bar Association, was held on March 16, 1995 at the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, Georgia. It was broadcast on C-SPAN II and a condensed version aired on COURT TV.
